Artists & Designers

Piero Gatti (b. 1940), Cesare Paolini (1937-1983), and Franco Teodoro (1939-2005)

Italian designers Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini, and Franco Teodoro cooperated on projects in the areas of architecture, urban development, product development, photography, and graphic design in Turin, Italy beginning in 1965. In 1979 they received the "Compasso d'oro" prize for their "Sacco" chair. By 1983 their design group had dissolved. They are perhaps best known for their bean bag, or "Sacco" chair designed in 1968/69.
