Sancarlo

Un projet historique qui fascine de nouveau par l’actualité ergonomique du dédoublement de son appui-reins et de son appui-tête : un concept à l’avant-garde à l’époque où il fut représenté et qui est rendu aujourd’hui encore plus efficace par un rembourrage moderne à densité différenciée. La structure en tube courbé, une expression typique de la culture du projet du XX siècle, devient encore plus agréable et expressive, au toucher et à la vue, grâce à une finition colorée moderne.

Achille Castiglioni

The hero of Italian design, Achille Castiglioni, along with his brothers Pier Giacomo and Livio, was able to find irony and beauty into the simplicity of everyday life. From the simplest electrical switches to the most iconic project of modern design, Castiglioni brothers transformed their uncontrollable curiosity in a series of timeless pieces. Castiglioni was born on 16 February 1918 in Milan, in Lombardy in northern Italy. He was the third son of the sculptor Giannino Castiglioni and his wife Livia Bolla. When the War was over, Castiglioni joined the architectural design practice that his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo had started with Luigi Caccia Dominioni in 1938. Livio Castiglioni left the practice in 1952. From then until Pier Giacomo died in 1968, he and Achille worked as a team. Achille believed in experimentation; his method was to always start from scratch, stick to common sense, know the end goal and the means to achieve it.
