Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Italian architects and designers Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1913-1968) are among the greatest names in modern Italian design. Their father was a notable architect, Giannino Castiglioni, and their brother, Livio Castiglioni, also became an architect and designer. Achille and Pier Giacomo both studied architecture at Politecnico di Milano and then worked there as teachers. Their collaboration has been productive and innovative, and the designs are often radical and humorous.
Similar to the designers of the first half of the 20th century, the Castiglioni brothers derive the beauty of an object from its function. Purity of lines, simple components, quality of materials, aesthetics intervenes to support the function.
