Italian, 1909 - 1963
In 1939, Italian designer Aldo Tura founded his studio nearby Milan. He was a master craftsman, producing his art pieces in limited series. In the post-war period, when many makers were moving towards mass production, Tura stayed faithful to the exclusive series production of the highest order. The design of Aldo Turas furniture is powerful and original, characterized by the use of exotic materials such as goatskin and parchment, in striking shades of red, brown, green and yellow with bronze details. He is recognized as being one of the most original and important artisans of the Italian post-war design movement.
