Milan: Furniture Fair - Azucena

Azucena. The iconic Catalina chair designed by Luigi Caccia Dominioni for Azucena in the late 1950s was updated in stainless steel in the 2001 and today is redesigned as a stool by the architect himself, now in his nineties.

Azucena – It’s all in the family.  Sisters, Marta and Anna Sala run the Azucena furniture company started in 1947 by their mother Maria Teresa Tosi (in the photograph) and her sister Franca, wife of renowned Milanese architect and designer Luigi Caccia Dominioni, to produce his furniture designs.

Azucena. The elegant armchair or bedside lamp in leather and chrome-plated brass, LP01 Lampada Poltrona, designed in 1979 by Luigi Caccia Dominioni conveniently sits on the back of a chair.
