Osvaldo Borsani was an Italian designer and architect, he first studied fine arts at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. In 1953, Osvaldo and his twin brother Fulgenzio founded the manufacturer Tecno, with the aim of utilizing modern manufacturing techniques that will deliver high-quality furniture to a larger international market. Initially, Tecno manufactured only Borsani’s furniture designs, and, although he continued to design furniture and objects until the early 1980s, by the late 1950s, Tecno also manufactured furniture from other designers, including Vico Magistretti, Roberto Mango, Gae Aulenti, Eugenio Gerli, Carlo de Carli, and Gio Ponti.
