Quick Reference

(b 1863; d 1938). Italian furniture designer, sculptor and cabinetmaker, based in Turin. The extravagantly curved lines of his early furniture (e.g. ‘Scrittoio’, 1898-1900) gradually yielded to the influence of north European designs, and by the 1920s he had become Italy's most distinguished exponent of Art deco furniture.
