Marco Zanuso (1916-2001) began his career in Milan, where he studied and worked for the former part of his life. He worked in the art industry for his entire life, but he is extremely well known for his Italian design work in the late 1940's. By 1958 he was working with German designer Richard Sapper to create furniture. Throughout the years he worked as an architect, designer, editor, and urban planner. The dynamic and creative energy that enabled him to work in so many fields is brought to each of his projects, making his designs unique and innovative.
