$ 11,000
  • Description
    Ico Parisi was born in Palermo, Italy, in 1916, but as early as 1925 with his family he moved to Como, where in 1936 he graduated as a building surveyor and served an apprenticeship at the Terragni studio. Discharged from the front in 1943, he returned to Como and resumed his design activity, dealing with the creation of individual furnishings, exhibition layouts and interior architecture. He collaborated with Luisa Aiani, whom he married in 1947 and with whom he opened the studio La Ruota. In the 50s he designed furniture, first in one-piece and later for industrial production with companies such as Cassina. In the 60s, with the "Contenitoriumani" he began a new path aimed at defining a utopian-existential idea of living. The culmination of his research is between 1974 and 1976 with "Operation Arcevia," aimed at designing an entire community.
    Here we have a pair of pendant lamps with lacquered steel frame and methacrylate diffusers designed by Ico Parisi for Terraneo in 1960.
