Product Story

Born out of a 1971 collaboration between Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù, the Parentesi was named for the parenthesis symbol—a visual reference to the nickel-plated shaped tube that lives on a floor-to-ceiling steel cable. A 50 years old best seller, now presented in a new edition using the colours each designer loved.

Born 1918 in Milan, Achille Castliglioni studied architecture before bringing his process of 'integral design' to a number of the world's biggest manufacturers. Working closely with his brother Pier Giacomo, Achille designed a series of iconic pieces of furniture and lighting noted for their refined, sculptural approach to modernist design.
