Achille Castiglioni was born in Milan in 1918. He graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Milan at the end of the 1930s and soon afterwards set up a design office in Milan with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo.
There, he devoted himself to experimenting with industrial products. Achille and his brothers became the most renowned industrial designers in post-war Italy. Achille was a founding member of the Association for Industrial Design (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale, ADI), established in 1956.
His work is in permanent collections in museums around the world, including 14 pieces in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The designer has won nine "Compasso d'Oro" awards, including a special mention as a person dedicated to industrial design who, thanks to his unparalleled experience, "elevated industrial design to the highest level of culture" in 1989.
During his lifetime, he designed and collaborated on nearly 150 objects. Most of Achille Castiglioni's lighting products are still in production.
