Studio Museo Achille Castiglioni

Museum in Brera & Parco Sempione

Architect, designer and teacher Achille Castiglioni was one of Italy’s most influential 20th-century thinkers. This is the studio where he worked until his death in 2002, and the hour-long tours vividly illuminate his playful creative process. Details abound: job folders printed with specially produced numerical stamps; scale models of his Hilly sofa designed for Cassina; and a host of inspirational objects, from joke glasses to bicycle seats.
