Ignazio Gardella

(Milano, 1905 – Oleggio, 1999)

“It is fundamental to recover the contemplative moment. (...) It is necessary to rediscover the very high quality of the environments.”

Far from any formalism, the furniture designed by Ignazio Gardella changed customs by combining the use of new and tradition materials in completely surprising ways. The search for quality design was realized with the founding, together with Luigi Cacia Dominioni, of Azucena, a company created to produce small series of furnishings.
