"I would say that the fundamental starting point for a design object lies in the usefulness it has for people. An object that is not born from a necessity cannot even be considered as belonging to this category, design."

- ANGELO MANGIAROTTI

Italian architect, sculptor and designer Angelo Mangiarotti was born in Milan in 1921. Mangiarotti is quoted to have said, ”Happiness comes from honesty”. A quote that hints to his overall design approach rooted in the firm belief that architecture was a practical discipline and that industrial design was an expression of fine craftsmanship. He wanted each individual material to be respected and to be used in an appropriate and honest way. Beyond his many architectural feats, Mangiarotti’s body of work boasts a wide array of creative projects from sculpture, to products and lighting. Over the course of his career, he held lecturing positions at a number of distinguished design and architecture schools in Italy and abroad, he won numerous awards in both design and architecture, and his work has been included in exhibitions and collections at some of the world’s leading art and design institutions such as Centre Pompidou in Paris, Triennale Design Museum in Milan and Gallery MA in Tokyo.

Glasses

An avowed proponent of anonymous design, Angelo Mangiarotti believed in making objects that “last longer than us”, to that end espousing “simple principles, elementary concepts and primary materials”. The fundamental starting point of any object was its usefulness, he said, but there were many more strands at play than mere function. The materiality, the shape, and above all the process, a conceptual way of thinking that applied to any or all projects irrespective of size or purpose.
