Designed by Gae Aulenti & Livio Castiglioni
Trepiù is an evocative lamp, with an upper shell bearing a marked vintage flavor in two colors and a dome in chromed or glossy white aluminum. Its perfectly-white interior diffuses uniform lighting.
Gaetana Aulenti, born in Northern Italy in 1927, and moved to Milan at an early age to study Architecture at the renowned Milan Polythechnic University, where she defyed tradition by being the only one of two women who graduated in her class.
As many of her peers, she started her career in the editorial world by working with the design magazine Casabella, immersed in the flourishing Milanese culture and in the Neoliberty movement, distancing herself from the Rationalism tendency of the war period.
Livio Castiglioni was born in 1911 in Milan, where he graduated in architecture in 1936. He opened a firm with architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni, which his brothers Pier Giacomo and Achille would later join. Lights, sounds, and audiovisuals were his main interests.
