Bruno Pozzi started his activity working in the studio of Architect Marco Zanuso where he worked alongside Richard Sapper. In 1973 he joins the Studio De Pas, D'Urbino Lomazzi and also starts working with Paolo Rosa of Studio Azzurro.

In 1982 he becomes an associate of architects Gianluigi Pieruzzi and Marco Duina, and starts working with several different companies in the Italian design scene, both for residential and contract assignments, including B&B, Minotti, La Palma, Ciatti a Tavola. For the latter he designs Axis for which he and Marco Duina are rewarded with a special mention at the 1987 Compasso d'Oro.

In the 1990s he works with Luca Martignon on the development of projects for Tonelli, Scavolini, B.V. Design. Together they also co-ordinate interior design projects for banking groups, including Caboto-Gruppo Ambrosiano Veneto, Credem and Abaxbank.
