1476 carpet beater | Gino Colombini | Kartell, Italy | 1960

Gino Colombini was born in 1915 in Milan, Italy.  He collaborated with Franco Albini between 1943 and 1953.  Between 1953 and 1960, he was technical director of Kartell.  After a time producing ware for the laboratory, Kartell, under the direction of Colombini, began producing utilitarian ware for the home.  He is one of the pioneers of plastic design.

Gino Colombini has several items in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.  During his time at Kartell, Gino Colombini won four Compasso d’Oro awards.  Image source: Kartell al Compasso d’Oro ADI.
