Biography
An influential Italian architect, industrial designer and interior designer, Sergio Asti established his own studio in Milan in 1953, the same year he graduated from the Politecnico di Milano. From his studio Asti cast a broad creative net, designing furniture, lighting, glassware, wood products, ceramics, electrical appliances, interiors, stores, and exhibitions for a wide variety of European and international companies.
In 1956, he became a founding member of ADI (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale), an association that brings together professionals, researchers, teachers, critics and journalists from around the world to promote and implement the most conducive conditions for the design of goods. Asti’s work has been exhibited widely, including at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
