With this design, an excellent and rare case of a new object made from fusing two classic household objects - fruit holder and colander - Achille Castiglioni won the “Young Creator of the Year” award from the Conseil National des Arts Culinaires de Paris in 1995. Castiglioni was 77 years of age at the time.
Born in Milan in 1918, he started work as an architect and designer with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo in 1938. One of the great masters of Italian design, he was a founding member of ADI in the fifties. The long list of awards he has received include eight Compassi d'Oro. His activity as a designer is an unmistakable blend of simplicity, irony and fun and its shows his close interest in the way objects are used, in the potential offered by technology and in the use of new materials. He dies in 2002.
