From designing the floor-to-ceiling Parentesi pendant lamp to that sleekest of mid-century staples, the Arco Floor lamp, Achille “Cici” Castiglioni is an icon of Italian modernism. Located a short walk from Milan’s Triennale museum, which recently hosted an exhibition to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Castiglioni’s birth, the Fondazione Achille Castiglioni works to preserve and promote the designer’s legacy by showcasing a collection of drawings, projects and models of his works—which range from lighting, to furniture, to playful anthropomorphic speaker systems.
