Fratelli Castiglioni

The work of Achille (1918-2002), Pier Giacomo (1913-1968), and Livio (1911-1979) Castiglioni is one of those designer-industry relationships that keep alive the successes of the 20th century. In his furniture, mostly still in production, the material is reduced to a minimum to optimize functionality, and his pieces remain the bestseller of many companies: from those he is famously linked to, such as Zanotta, Cassina, Moroso, Knoll International, and Kartell, to Alessi, De Padova and Flos. Until 1968, Achille Castiglioni worked in collaboration with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo (1913-1968); with the latter, he created iconic furnishings such as the San Luca armchair in Neoliberty style, designed in 1961 for Gavina, and the revolutionary Mezzadro stool for Zanotta in 1957. Castiglioni worked alone for the rest of his life while teaching at the polytechnic university of Milan.
