Osvaldo Borsani, founder of the Italian furniture manufacturer Tecno, took up work in his father’s workshop, the Arredamento Borsani in Varedo, after graduating in 1937. He was one of the first Italian designer recognizing the relevance of rationalist principles and avant-garde art which led his company into noteworthy collaborations with well-known contemporary artists like Lucio Fontana, Roberto Crippa, Fausto Melotti and Arnaldo Pomodoro with whom he realized important works of art in furnishing and interior architecture.
In 1953, together with his twin brother Fulgenzio, he founded TECNO, a furniture company focused on engineering and innovative design solutions. Early pieces by Tecno can be found in the permanent collections of the MoMa, New York, the V&A, London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Neue Sammlung, Munich.
