Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) is the son of a sculptor and, after studying architecture, immersed himself in the study of forms, techniques and new materials. In his long career he has designed not only lighting but also furniture, appliances, home accessories and so much more. At first glance, his designs appear to be composed of objects found by chance. His experimental attitude is certainly reflected in this. Yet time and again he manages to create original and playful design pieces with a practical undertone.
