"What you need is a constant and consistent way of designing, not a style."
-Achille Castiglioni

Meaning 'sharecropper' in Italian, Mezzadro was originally designed in the early 20th century and was part of Castiglioni's 'ready-made' series from found objects.

Mezzadro is now made of a chromium-plated steel stem, allowing for flexibility and comfort, steam-treated beech foot-rest in a natural finish, and an aluminum seat lacquered in your choice of six vibrant colors.

Achille Castiglioni's imaginative forms and simplistic designs have made him one of the most influential figures in Italian design. Founder of the Association for Industrial design in 1956 and recipient of numerous awards including seven Compasso d'Oro awards.

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. “Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,” Castiglioni said. He was best known for his lamps, including Flos, Luminator, Bulb, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp, inspired by the comics character.
