Gianfranco Frattini was an Italian designer, architect and an important member of the generation that created the Italian Design movement of the mid-1950 through the 1960s. Frattini opened his own professional practice in Milan, after having worked in the office of his teacher and mentor Gio Ponti. His professional activity was concerned principally with interiors and Industrial Design.
