Tito Agnoli found his inspiration by studying the Bauhaus and the functional movement. He designed many pieces of furniture for well known companies such as Arflex, Oluce, Montina, Lema or Cinova. The “Floor Lamp” or the “Rondo sofa” are timeless pieces thanks to their sober and clean lines. Agnoli was born in Peru in 1931, but chose Milan for his architectures studies. At the Faculty of Architecture, he met Gio Ponti and Carlo De Carli and became their assistant. Not long after did he design pieces for several Italians producer. He has been recommended for the Compasso d’Oro (Italian prize). He won the gold medal at the Neocon in Chicago in 1986. Some of his designs are part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
