Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno T334C Dining Table in Wood and Aluminium

$8,700

About

Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno, conference table T334-C, aluminum and wood, Italy, 1975-1978. Round dining table with a round top. The base consists out of a three-legged metal frame which creates an open character. It was at the time that founder and key designer Osvaldo Borsani was put in charge of the company and the day to day running was left in the hands of the architect Marco Fantoni and other designers. This creation of the 'Centro Progetti Tecno' was a decision made to present future designs of the company as a group creation, not as the result of the creative mind of one single designer. 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.

About Osvaldo Borsani (Designer)

With his stylish and technically innovative furniture, Osvaldo Borsani helped change the face of Italian design in the 1950s and ’60s. His sofas and chairs, featuring deeply upholstered seating and adjustable position settings, have an aura of optimism and efficiency that still seems fresh and lively today.


Born in the commune of Varedo in northern Italy’s Lombardy region, Borsani studied at the Brera Academy in Milan — the same school attended by such luminaries as designer Piero Fornasetti and artist Lucio Fontana — as well as the Polytechnic University of Milan. Borsani first worked for his father’s furniture-making firm, an atelier influenced by the more expressive and curvaceous wing of Art Deco design. By 1953, when, along with his twin brother, Fulgenzio — the pair also created this visionary mid-century villa — Borsani opened the furniture company Tecno, his design sensibilities had evolved toward furnishings with strong, simple forms enhanced by mechanical innovations, as with the P40 adjustable armchair (1953). Borsani would be the firm’s lead designer for 30 years, while fostering work by Vico Magistretti, Carlo di Carli, Robin Day and others.


Similar to Giò Ponti in the earliest years of his career, Borsani first created designs marked by lush and buoyant lines: tables with voluptuous curved legs, sofas with undulating backrests. But Borsani’s best-known and most novel pieces date from Tecno’s initial furniture lines: the adjustable D70 sofa, which folds open to make a daybed, and the P40 recliner. The latter — now included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum — is an articulated lounger with a back, seat and leg rest that can be moved into 486 different positions. Not only is it extremely comfortable, it is also enduringly chic.
