Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni both studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and later worked there as teachers. Their collaboration was productive and innovative, and the designs were often radical. They experimented new inventive techniques and materials to create their designs, as is the case with the resin-coated Mod. Gatto.
