About the Designer:
Bruno Munari was born in Milan in 1907, he began artistic work at a very early age in the cultural area of Futurism: in 1927 he exhibited for the first time at collective exhibition "33 Futurist Painters" at the Galleria Pesaro in Milan. At the same time he pursued various activities - art-director, publicist, illustrator.
In 1930 he produced the "Air Machine", from which came the "Useless Machines", anticipating his interest in the destruction of the traditional work of art.
Numerous exhibitions have been dedicated to his work in galleries and the world’s principal museums of contemporary art. Among the most complete were the personal at the Centro Studi e Archivio della Comunicazione of the University of Parma in 1979, the travelling personal organized by the Museeo Fondacion Soto di Ciudad Bolivar (held in 1984 in seven Venezuelan cities) and the large retrospective which he himself organized, at Palazzo Reale in Milan in 1986.
