Marco Zanuso (1916-2001) was one of the driving forces of great Italian design, forcefully imposed on the attention of the whole world in the years of the second post-war period. Particularly attentive to the technical and production aspects, together with Pirelli and its subsidiary Arflex he was the protagonist of the creation of a material that would forever change the way of understanding upholstery: foam rubber. Some of his most famous projects of those years are now re-edited by Cassina, such as the immortal Lady armchair, gold medal at the Milan Triennale in 1951. His passion for technology has led him to leave an indelible mark also in the design of electronic objects, such as the iconic radios and televisions made for Brionvega, often in collaboration with Richard Sapper, testify. He has had the opportunity to compete with all kinds of products, from refrigerators to sewing machines, from telephones to car bodies, obviously without forgetting furniture and lighting in his collaborations with Zanotta, Gavina, Oluce and Kartell.
