Fondazione Achille Castiglioni
Fondazione Achille Castiglioni in Milan has announced a new chapter that divulges the work of the architect in whose name it exists. Young brand Karakter Copenhagen, one of the new discoveries at Salone 2016, has re-edited several archive pieces: Trio and Comodo (1991 and 1988, designed with Giancarlo Pozzi), Libreria Pensile hanging shelves (1957, with his brother Pier Giacomo Castiglioni), and Lungangolo (1991), complementary items with a discreet presence, as well as simplicity and clean lines. The heirs of architect Giancarlo Pozzi donated the rights to sell the object he co-designed, in support of the Foundation. The Danish company has resuscitated Achille Castiglioni’s furniture items, among which are those pieces dedicated to a timeless, ambient office.
