Achille Castiglioni & Pier Giacomo
Brothers Achille and Pier Castiglioni bring their background in architecture and energetic approach to all of their designs. Born in Italy in 1918 and 1913 respectively, the pair began their own Industrial Design Studio after the second world war, along with a third brother, Livio, who later left the studio to pursue an independent career.
Achille and Pier Castiglioni created most of their famous designs in partnership with large Italian manufacturers, most notably the lighting company Flos. A range of these collaborations have been replicated and are available from Matt Blatt, including the Arco Floor Lamp, the Taccia Table Lamp and Snoopy Table Lamp.
