Italian designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) was born in Milan. He studied architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan and in 1944 set up a design office with his brothers, Livio and Pier Giacomo --Livio left in 1952-- which would become one of the most witty, elegant and innovative partnerships in modern design. They worked from the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form and production process, and applied this maxim to every work that they produced. Castiglioni described this process: "Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means." The Bavero collection saunters with a crisp and simple, uncluttered approach, exhibited by the "Bavero" Round Teapot. Made of elegant white porcelain, this teapot will add a touch of class to any table setting.
