About

Osvaldo Borsani and Arnaldo Pomodoro, queen size bed, brass and steel, Italy, circa 1960. A rare and elegant bed with headboard from the Italian designer Osvaldo Borsani and sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro. Between 1958 and 1962, Borsani and Pomodoro developed three models of beds, among other this piece. Borsani's base structure of the bed is made of brass and steel, whilst the headboard features Pomodoro's sculptural, decorative work. This is beautiful example of Italian bedroom furniture. Osvaldo Borsani (1911-1985) is known for his modernist designs at Tecno Milano. Before he began Tecno with his twin brother, Osvaldo designed furniture at his fathers cabinetry Atelier Varedo or Arredamento Borsani. Tecno was founded in 1953 by Osvaldo and Fulgenzio Borsani. The core thought on which the company was found on the IDEA that Dwellings function as the fundament on which the quality of life is built. Although Tecno was led by functionalism, aesthetics have never been unimportant. Technique the tool that led to typological innovation. The office world experience an extreme growth in postwar Italy and it was mainly to this world that Tecno dedicated their innovative design and craftsmanship. Literature: Bosoni, Giampiero. Osvaldo Borsani. Architect. Designer. Entrepreneur. Milan: Skira, 2018, p. 480-481.
