Biagio Marble Table Lamp
Tobia Scarpa received more than an education from Venice’s Instituto Universitario di Architettura—he also met his wife and design partner, Afra Blanchin. Since 1960, the couple has collaborated on designs for several prominent international companies, including Flos, Cassina, and Knoll. Their signature vocabulary features accessible yet luxurious design based on expanding technology and a varied palette of materials. Along with commercial architecture and interior design, some of the Scarpas’ best-known work was for the Benetton clothing company. Their designs have been included in four of the Museum’s exhibitions, from Recent Acquisitions: Design Collection (1967-68) to Shaping Modernity 1880-1980 (2013).
