Achille Castiglioni

On a recent trip to Milano I got to visit Studio Museum Achille Castiglioni – the old studio of the famous Italian designer. Achille Castiglioni started his design studio together with his two brothers, and together they made some fantastic designs like the Mazzadro-chair, the Sella-chair and the Sleek-spoon. I’ve always enjoyed studio visits, there’s something very inspiring and rewarding about it, but this was especially interesting. Not only did I get to see the finished products, I was also introduced to some of the process and thinking behind them… not to mention Castiglioni’s huge collection of everyday objects.
