Osvaldo Borsani

Osvaldo Borsani was born in 1911 in Varedo, Italy. He studied Beaux-Arts at Accademia di Brera in Milan and architecture at Politecnico di Milano, graduating in 1936.
In 1953, Osvaldo and his twin brother, Fulgenzio opened TECNO, a company that became known for its technology and research-based approach to furniture design. Notable TECNO designs include the 1954 D70, a sofa that can assume approximately twenty positions; the 1955 P40 chaise, featuring mobile parts with adjustable backrest and armrests; and the 1968 Graphis office furniture system, created by Borsani and Eugenio Gerli.
