Tobia Scarpa

Italian, 1935
Architect and designer Tobia Scarpa graduated in 1969 at the University of Venice and in the same year won a “Compasso d’Oro” prize for his “Soriana” armchair designed for Cassina. He has since been awarded many other design prizes and many of his designs can also be found on show in some of the world’s key museums, including his ‘Libertà’ chair on show at the Louvre.
As an architect he has worked for both public and private clients including the Benetton Group for whom he famously designed the industrial area and production plants in Castrette di Villorba (Treviso). Even today, the Benetton facilities are still held up as an example of aesthetic-functional excellence, one of the world’s most exciting pieces of industrial architecture.
