Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was an Italien architect, furniture and lighting designer graduating from the Milan School of Architecture in 1954. Aulenti was one of only a few women architects and designers who gained notoriety in their own right during the post-war period in Italy, with avant-garde design movement blossoming into an entirely new type of design full of imaginary utopias. Aulenti's conceptual development can be wonderfully followed in the design magazine CASABELLA, to which she contributed regularly. Aulenti designed products and furniture for companies such as ARTEMIDE, POLTRONOVA, CANDLE, KNOLL, LOUIS VUITTON and MARTIUNELLI LUCE.
Very good condition.
