Angelo Mangiarotti is an Italian designer whose marble tables have become totally unconventional.
Born in 1921, Angelo Mangiarotti graduated from the Milan School of Architecture in 1948 and flew to the United States in 1953 where he stayed until 1955. This American escapade allowed him to work as a professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago and to meet the great names of design such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Konrad Wachsmann.
Back in Milan, he joined forces with Bruno Morassutti and opened a studio in Milan in which he worked until the 1960s.
Passionate about industrial and consumer design, he produced furniture for the publishers Artemide, Cassina, Poltronova Snaidero, Skipper, etc. The year 1989 will be a new turning point in his career as he creates Mangiarotti & Associates in Tokyo.
He died in 2012, leaving behind him famous objects such as the marble tables Eros, Incas, Asolo, M4, Roto3, the Chicago chair, as well as Murano glass lamps such as the Giogali ceiling lamp or the Saffo and Lesbo lamps, Cub 8, .
