This week the Design world lost two iconic Masters… Sergio Pininfarina and Angelo Mangiarotti.
Sergio Pininfarina was an Italian auto design genius who designed world famous iconic cars, including the 1984 Ferrari Testarossa, the 1996 Peugeot 406 Coupe, the 1986 Fiat 124 Spider, the 2002 Ferrari Enzo, the 2003 Maserati Quattroporte and the 2004 Ferrari Scaglietti. He fulfilled the world’s desire for luxury and speed with his innovative machines.
Angelo Mangiarotti was an Italian Architect and Industrial Designer. The main concept in his architecture, design and sculpture works is the rise of form through the correct use of matter and technique. In his long career he has focused his efforts on the industrial process for buildings and design production, never forgetting the real needs of users. Something as basic as this clock, pictured here, turned into a Work of Art.
We salute your lives, ideas, and progressive thinking and thank you for shaping and paving the way for all Designers who dare to dream the impossible and bring their creations to the world.
