Claudio Salocchi was an Italian industrial and furniture designer and architect. He produced numerous furniture and lighting designs, and, in parallel, spent much time and effort researching different applications of aluminum alloys, optimizing furniture and layout heights for work and home environments, and using new and unfamiliar configurations that would not compromise the practicality of the piece. In 1979, Salocchi was awarded the prestigious de Compasso d’Oro.
