ANOTHER CURRENTLY RUNNING ON 1stdibs FOR 2,000..Guzzini were at the forefront of the'Made in Italy' movement in the 60s and this is a perfect example of a period piece that would look contemporary if came out today.

In overall very good condition with slight age related markings that could be polished out if desired.

Luigi Massoni; Architect and designer.
Born in Milan on January 22nd 1930. His field of activity covers much more than mere architecture: for approximately thirty years, he has also worked as a designer, freelance journalist and editor. After his apprenticeship years at the Collettivo di Architettura in Milan and his first experiences between 1953 and 1955, he began his activity as a designer, by creating a bar set for Alessi and the Serie 5 containers still being produced today. Between 1957 and 1960, together with architect Carlo De Carli, he contributed to the productive and professional revival by participating in the various demonstrations promoted during that time.
Again, with De Carli, he founded Il Mobile Italiano. In 1959, associating a group of furniture industrialists, he founded Mobilia, one of the first centres for the promotion of Italian design. In 1959 still, he began working for Boffi Cucine as designer and production co-ordinator, realising some of the first modular systems for the home and kitchen.
From this experience, as designer and art-director, he improved the image of many Italian and foreign industries operating in the following sectors: Furnishings kitchens, modular furniture, armchairs, etc. ; Plastic materials; Ceramics and China; Glass and crystal; Metals and precious metals; Leather goods and accessories; Giftware and Household articles. Thanks to his publications, he plays a determinant role in the development of industrial and craft-based businesses. His works (published in the most important Italian and foreign magazines) have been awarded numerous prizes and acknowledgements.
