Cini Boeri graduated from the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1951 and, after a brief internship in the studio of Giò Ponti, began a lengthy collaboration with Marco Zanuso. In 1963, she opened her own professional studio with a focus on residential architecture and industrial design. In Italy and abroad, she designed single-family homes, apartments, museum exhibits, offices and stores, focusing specifically on the functionality of space and the psychological relationships between human beings and their environment. From an industrial design perspective, she was particularly active in the design of furnishings and building components. Several of her works are in museum collections and international expositions. An educator and speaker, Boeri held conferences and lectured at universities and institutions in Italy and abroad – at Berkeley, Barcelona, the Nucleo del Desenho Industrial in São Paulo, Brazil, the College of Architects in Rio de Janeiro, the Cranbrook School in Detroit, the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Vico Morcote (Switzerland), the Pacific Design Center and UCLA in Los Angeles, and the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Università della Svizzera Italiana. From 1981 to 1983, she taught courses in Architectural Design and Industrial Design and Furnishings at the Polytechnic University School of Architecture in Milan. She was a member of the Board of Directors of the XVI Triennale di Milano. She served on the juries of many international competitions and received numerous international awards for her own work.
