Regarded as an icon of post-war Italian design and one of the leading figures of the Modern Movement, Marco Zanuso was a founding member of the Associazione del Disegno Industriale (ADI). With six Compasso d’Oro awards under his belt, he is remembered as one of the world’s greatest designers.

The Conran Shop

During the late 1940s, Marco Zanuso embarked on experimentation with tubular metal, which led to the creation of some of his most iconic designs. Originally designed by Zanuso for a MoMA competition in 1947, his Maggiolina Chair helped define mid-century design. Immediately receiving international accolades on its release, the chair marked the discarding of rigid geometry and introduced fluid lines and the ‘good form’ design ideology that was to emerge in the 1950s.

Editor of Domus magazine from 1947 until 1949 and a lecturer at the Polytechnic of Milan between 1961 and 1991, Marco Zanuso turned his skilled hand to a range of mediums. The architect behind Milan’s IBM building and the Olivetti buildings in Buenos Aires and São Paolo, Zanuso also designed a folding telephone for Siemens and a car for Alfa Romeo. Honoured with pieces in the permanent collection at New York’s MoMA, Zanuso’s work remains incredibly coveted today.
