Pio Manzù

(1939-1969) Son of the sculptor Giacomo Manzù, he graduated from the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm. In 1967 he became consultant at Fiat, for which he designed the City Taxi, the Autobianchi Coupé and the Fiat 127. He devoted himself to the design of objects such as Cronotime, produced by Ritz Italora, the Parentesi lamp for Flos, the Portaoggetti desk holder for Kartell. The “poltrona fisiologica”, designed in 1967 for La Rinascente, the one-leg table, designed for Agnelli's home in Rome, were respectively produced by Alias in 2011 and 2018. Pio Manzù was a true pioneer of ergonomics through rigorous design and mastery of technology.
