Additional Information

Marco Zanuso:
Marco Zanuso (Milan, May 14, 1916 - July 11, 2001) was an Italian architect and designer. He is considered one of the founding fathers of Italian industrial design. Together with the group of the BBPR studio, Alberto Rosselli, Franco Albini, Marcello Nizzoli and the brothers Livio, Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni, he contributed to the post-war debate on the "modern movement" in architecture and design. Zanuso was one of the very first to take an interest in the problems of product industrialization and the application of new materials and technologies to commonly used objects. Graduated in 1939, he was editor of the magazines Domus (1947-49) and Casabella (1952-54), and founding member (1956) and president of the Association for Industrial Design (1966-69). Together with Alberto Rosselli he designed the three-dimensional Compasso d'oro, based on a design by Albe Steiner. In 1948 Pirelli founded Arflex, to produce upholstered furniture in foam rubber: Marco Zanuso is in charge of designing. In 1954 he was a member of the jury of the Compasso d'Oro Award with Aldo Borletti, Cesare Brustio, Gio Ponti and Alberto Rosselli. In 1955 he was a member of the jury of the Compasso d'Oro Award with Aldo Borletti, Cesare Brustio, Ernesto Nathan Rogers and Alberto Rosselli. In 1955 he was a member of the jury of the Compasso d'Oro Award with Lodovico Barbiano di Belgiojoso, Vico Magistretti, Augusto Magnaghi and Augusto Morello. In 1957 he began his collaboration with Richard Sapper, with whom he created the Doney television (Brionvega) in 1962, the K 1340 (Kartell) chairs in 1964 and the Grillo telephone (Siemens) in 1967. Within Brionvega, the collaboration of the two designers led to the production, as well as the Doney television, also of the Sirius television (1964) and the Black television (1969). He taught at the Milan Polytechnic from 1961 to 1991. Until 1963 he collaborated with Cini Boeri in the field of interior architecture. In 1998 he was a member of the jury of the Compasso d'Oro Award with Achille Castiglioni, Giuseppe De Rita, Marianne Frandsen, Fritz Frenkler, Sadik Karamustafa and Tomàs Maldonado. - -
