Details

The winner of nine Compasso d’Oro awards, Achille Castiglioni was born in Milan in 1918 and graduated with a degree in architecture in 1944. After school, he began researching shapes, techniques and new materials, aimed at developing an integral design process. In 1969, he was authorized by the Ministry of Education to teach “Artistic Design for Industry” and was a professor at Turin’s Faculty of Architecture until 1980, then a professor of “Industrial Design” in Milan until 1993. He designed his height-adjustable Parentesi Lamp with Pio Manzu in 1971. Designed to provide direct lighting, the bulb moves vertically up and down the 13-foot floor-to-ceiling cable (may be cut to size) to suit the task at hand. Castiglioni’s work is included in the permanent collections of museums worldwide, including MoMA in New York (they have 14 pieces), the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Bulb (not included): 120V 1 x 120W Medium Flood BR40. Made in Italy.

Achille Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni’s designs were often inspired by everyday things and made use of ordinary materials like extruded aluminum and stainless steel. The genius of his inventive imagination was in his ability to use the minimal amount of materials while creating forms with a maximum effect. “Start from scratch, stick to common sense, and know your goals and means,” he often told his students.
