Gianfranco Frattini

(Padova, 1926 – Milano, 2004)

“My life as a designer is in the factory.”

According to Gianfranco Frattini, the product should be conceived in close liaison with the production, considered the true laboratory for experimenting with shapes and materials. Wood is the preferred material for creating a world of beauty and rigor. His passion for a work experienced in close contact with the final makers led him to collaborate with large Italian companies, both in the furniture and lighting field.
