Description

Villa Borsani: Casa Libera!

The Archivio Osvaldo Borsani and Ambra Medda invite you to discover a modernist gem: Villa Borsani, which will open its doors to the public for the first time during Salone del Mobile (16-20 April).

The historic residence, which was completed in 1945, is located in the town of Varedo just north of Milan. Set within 3,000 square meters of gardens, it is a rare and immaculately preserved example of Borsani's richly layered modernism. The extensive archives, housed on the grounds of the Villa, are painstakingly catalogued, and contain thousands of documents including scale drawings, watercolors, photographs and letters spanning the fifty years of Borsani’s career.

Osvaldo Borsani was a visionary figure of Italian twentieth-century design; an architect, designer, and entrepreneur who transformed his father’s furniture atelier into an international brand, co-founding Tecno in 1953 with his twin brother Fulgenzio.
