Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002). He was born in Milan and, as early as 1940, he devoted himself to experimenting with mass-produced artifacts, with his architect brothers Livio (1911-1979) and Pier Giacomo (1913-1968). After Achille received his degree in architecture in 1944, he and Pier Giacomo initiated their designing career; the poetic was entirely based on novel forms, techniques and "new" materials. The aim was to attain an "integral" design process. One of the founders of the Industrial Design Association, he has starred in numerous Milan Triennale shows. It culminated in the 1979 "New Triennale," where he was one of the twelve Italians in the Design Collection. Castiglioni's part in creating some of the cleverest modern design objects has been particularly important. Belonging to a variety of types, they have been a big success internationally. In addition, he has created a host of installations, including those for the Triennale itself and for the exhibition of Zanotta's collection at Linz's 1980 Forum Design. His production is portrayed in the essays on Italian design and in the records of the Compasso d'Oro (which he has won several times). Also, it can be found in the major design museums. In 1980 the archives of the practice run by Achille and Pier Giacomo were acquired by the Study Center and Communication Archives at the University of Parma. In 1984 his one-man traveling show opened at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna. Later, it played at the Berlin Hochschule für Bildende Kunste, Milan's Triennale, the Kunstgewerbe Museum in Zurich, the Hague's Gemeentemuseum, the Madrid Circulo des Bellas Artes and the Centre Georges Pompidou - Beaubourg in Paris. In 1986 the Rohsska Konstslöjdmuseet in Göteborg staged an exhibit of his pieces created for Zanotta and Flos. Besides his designing and criticism (for Stile Industria in the 1950s), since 1969 he has taught, too. Since 1981 he has been professor of Decorating and Industrial Design at the School of Architecture of the Milan Polytechnic. Achille Castiglioni has been working for Zanotta since 1964.
