Italian architect, sculptor, and designer Angelo Mangiarotti was born in Milan in 1921. Mangiarotti is quoted to have said, ”Happiness comes from honesty”. A quote that hints to his over all design approach that was rooted in the firm belief that architecture was a practical discipline – and that industrial design was an expression of fine craftsmanship. He wanted each individual material to be respected and to be used in an appropriate and honest way. Beyond his many architectural feats, Mangiarotti’s work includes a wide array of creative projects ranging from sculptures, to products and lamps. Over the course of his career, he held lecturing positions at a number of distinguished design and architecture schools in Italy and abroad, he won numerous awards in both design and architecture, and his work has been featured in many exhibitions worldwide, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Triennale Design Museum in Milan, and Gallery MA in Tokyo.
