Ico Parisi
back to Designer

Born in 1916 in Sicilia, Ico Parisi is, nowadays, considered as one of the most influential designers of the 1950s. Student of the rationalist Giuseppe Terragni, he created « Global » architectures, in which he melted architecture and furniture. Through his conceptions, Parisi transcribed his purely modernist ideas to 1930’s urbanism. In 1945, he organized his first exhibition as a designer and in 1948, with his wife, he founded an architecture and design agency wich was called « La Rueta ». His lightings were produced by Arteluce, a famous editing house founded by Gino Sarfatti.
