Carlo di Carli

Carlo di Carli (1910-1999) was born in Milan was an Italian designer and architect. He earned his reputation as one of the masters of Italian design in the 1940s and 1950s while working with Gio Ponti.

In 1954 his 683 Cassina chair won the Compasso d'Oro award, and in 1957 he founded the review Il Mobile Italiano in order to review how furniture was made and document furniture makers in various regions. He was a key figure in bringing Italian furniture to the international market, and he worked with students at the Politecnico di Milan and Torino and the Universitario di Architettura di Venezia.

An exhibition of his work was held in 2011 at the Triennale Design Museum.
