The Tuscan main town celebrates Achille Castiglioni’s 100th birthday, with a special setting at the Self Habitat showroom and with an appointment of the cycle “Lessons of Design” completely dedicated to the great Milanese architect, at the space “Le Murate Progetti Arte e Cultura”.

On May 31st, in the presence of Valentina Gensini (art director at Le Murate), of Vanni Pasca (historian of Design) and of Giuliano Mosconi (President of Zanotta and Tecno), the event is organized by the association Self Habitat Cultura.

Some of the most renowned projects by the Italian designer, made in collaboration with Zanotta, are on show: Allunaggio, the seat that “landed” from another planet, the rotating shelf-unit Joy, the Leonardo working table and the Albero, ironic plant stand.
