"Munari’s process of design actually leave strong traces, unforgettable, inerasable figurative or cultural pointers”
Born in Gorizia in 1930, his goldsmithing industrialist is an atypical figure of collector, patron and inventor.
Subsequent to the encounter with Carlo Scarpa in 1973, he focused all his research and activity to industrial design, collaborating with the most influential companies worldwide.
In 1985 he creates an artistic workshop in which cooperate 20 of the world greatest architects and designers (e.g. Aulenti, Castiglioni, Sottsass, De Lucchi, Magistretti, Scarpa).
In his search for inspirations, ideas and original projects, Cleto Munari is open to a continuous analysis, experimenting with new techniques, approaches and materials.
His works - especially those created on gold and silver – are part of permanent collections all around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York.
