Ignazio Gardella
Italian, 1905–1999
Follow

Born into a family that boasted four generations of architects, Ignazio Gardella seemed destined for a similar fate. He went on to become one of the most celebrated Italian designers of the mid-20th century. A pioneer of Italian Rationalism—the architectural movement of the 1930s and ’40s that balanced classicism with futurism—Gardella favored geometry and functionality over ornamentation. The designer’s pared-down aesthetic is present in his buildings, furniture, and light fixtures alike. Drawing from technological and aesthetic advances established by the International Style (championed by Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, Gardella employed steel and glass to achieve his signature linear forms.
