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