\ Mangiarotti Collection

A collection of special objects to live with and inhabit, a catalogue of design gems chosen from the repertoire of a great master, Angelo Mangiarotti, who has contributed scores of excellent projects and several masterpieces to the history of design.

The collection includes objects for everyday living, all very diverse, although designed by the same author, extremely relevant to today’s needs, and consistent, despite
having been designed over a fifty-year period. Conceived by a designer who has been able to experiment with and establish new reference parameters in typology, form and construction, the collection proposes objects that deal in an unconventional way with the objects that inhabit our lives (chairs, tables, shelves and storage units), making them functional in an intelligent, innovative way, and giving them appropriate, yet sophisticated and unusual form.

\ Process

The ‘Mangiarotti Collection’ consists in 11 products manufactured by carefully following Angelo Mangiarotti’s designs and studying his original models. The projects produced by the master since the early ‘50s were analysed in depth from a technical and constructive point of view, then further checked and revised to take into account changes in the functional needs of our times and to meet current quality, strength and safety requirements. Giampaolo Benedini has worked with great professional rigour and profound respect and admiration for Mangiarotti’s work, in collaboration with Patrizia Cassinelli, Emanuele Gandellini and Agapecasa’s technical department, and with the full support of Studio Mangiarotti in Milan who provided the necessary checks to ensure authenticity, updating Mangiarotti’s projects so that they meet contemporary requirements, while ensuring that the theoretical, compositional and formal aspects of the projects are retained; introducing small technical variations, as in the case of works by other great Twentieth century masters over the last few decades.
