Born in Milan in 1921, he studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and graduated in 1948. Already in the early 1950s, at the beginning of his career, his designs attracted international attention. He was a guest lecturer at the Illinois Institute of Technology from 1953 to 1954 and shortly afterwards returned to Milan in 1955 to work with Bruno Morassutti. During this time he worked as a consultant for various companies. In 1960 he joined the Associazone per il Disegno Industriale and founded his own office. One of his well-known designs was the “Lesbo” table lamp, which he designed in 1966 and which was produced by Artemide. In 1968 he designed a small collection of marble vases for Knoll International and shortly afterwards the collection for Skipper. Marble and glass were among Mangiarotti’s favourite materials. Today, all the pieces in the marble collections have become sought-after collector’s items.
