Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1913-1968) and Achille (1918-2002) are the eldest and the youngest of the three Castiglioni brothers who all studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. The two Castiglioni brothers were interested in both technology and art and in the 1940s began their original professional partnership, "Castiglioni Brothers". The company was especially successful with their lamps for Arredoluce, Flos, and Artemide. The brothers worked from the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form and production process, a philosophy they applied to every work they produced.
