Overview

Writing the history of Tecno, a company founded in 1953 by the Borsani brothers, does not mean just investigating the evolution of a significant player in the industrial production of furniture, but also tracing out a fundamental chapter in interior design at a global level. 

Many Tecno projects have been designed by some of the most prominent international architects and designers, including Vico Magistretti, Roberto Mango, Robin Day, Gio Ponti, Mario Bellini, Norman Foster, Ricardo Bofill, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Emilio Ambasz, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Gae Aulenti, and Piero Lissoni. Not to mention Tecno has always had a strong bond with the world of art, which has found material form in a specific collection of furnishings designed by noted artists like Man Ray, Bruno Munari, François and Frédéric Morellet, and Luigi Veronesi. Today, many Tecno products are exhibited in leading museums around the world: at MoMA, New York and San Francisco, the Museum of Decorative Arts, Montreal, and many others.
