Marco Zanuso was an Italian architect, designer and urban planner. Born in Milan in 1916, he is considered one of the founding fathers of Italian industrial design and part of the Modern Movement in architecture: he was one of the first to take an interest in the problems of product industrialization and in the application of new materials and technologies to objects of common use. He studied at the Polytechnic University of Milan, opened his own studio in 1945 and was editor of the architectural magazine Casabella from 1952 to 1956. In the same year he was one of the founders of ADI (Association for Industrial Design). From 1948 he worked for Arflex, designing upholstered seats, while in 1957 he collaborated with the designer Richard Sapper, with whom, in addition to furniture, he also created a series of radios and televisions. He died in Milan in 2001.
