Joe Colombo

Milano 1930

He attends the Politecnico and the Brera Art Accademy in Milan. After an important experience in the informal art, he designs the X Triennale setting in 1954 and in 1956 he realizes his first building in Milano (Via Rosolino Pilo)

In 1963 he sets up his own studio in Milan and he devotes himself to the design of industrial products, many of which, when differently assembled, are proper object systems. Pioneer in ergonomic study for design, he develops well unique and defined in space products, of sculptural and dynamic appearance. Several objects become icons of design and are part of the collections of the most important museums in the world.
