Luigi Caccia Dominioni
The furniture and objects made by milanese architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni (1913-2016) can be recognised by their simple elegance and pure geometric shapes. In 1947, when he founded the Azucena factory with architect Ignazio Gardella and Corrado Corradi Dell'Acqua, Caccia Dominioni had already gained experience as an interior designer. Azucena (which was acquired by B&B Italia in 2018), established itself as the reference point of modern classicism, combining essential furniture with the highest quality of manufacture. In his very long life, Caccia Dominioni designed for Azucena hundreds of objects, many of which are great design classics with timeless charm. Some are still in production, such as the Catilina armchair (1957), which features an iron frame, a wooden seat and a rubber cushion.
