Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) was a renowned Italian industrial designer often inspired by everyday things. He made use of ordinary materials, preferring to use minimal materials to create a maximal effect. Born in Milan, Castiglioni studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano University and set up a design office in 1944 with his brothers, Livio Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The brothers held the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form, and production process. ôStart from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,ö Castiglioni said. He was best known for his lamps, including Flos, Luminator, Bulb, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp, inspired by the comics character.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitraĺs approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the companyĺs contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
