Italian designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) had a passion for re-designing, re-inventing and re-conceptualizing. Traditional interior design objects would pass through his Milan based studio and end up perfected. He always aimed at enhancing and glorifying the value of the design. Throughout his career he worked to raise design to an ever-higher level of synthesis—stripping design down to the very core and eliminating everything superfluous.
During his career Achille Castiglioni collaborated with many designers, most famously his brother Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, but also Giancarlo Pozzi, with whom he designed two products, Trio and Comodo in 1991.We are very proud to have 5 of Achille Castiglioni’s designs in our collection and to be part of one of the most amazing and beautiful design stories ever told. Here in 2018, Achille Castiglioni would have been 100 years old, and he still remains one of the 20th century’s most curious, imaginative and creative designers.
