Cini Boeri

Italy (1924)

A doyenne of Italian design, Cini Boeri is known for an array of lively prod­ucts and projects. She grad­u­ated from Politec­nico di Milano in 1951 and spent over a decade working with Marco Zanuso before forming her own archi­tec­ture and indus­trial design studio in 1963. The curved-glass Ghost chair, designed in 1987 in collab­o­ra­tion with Tomu Katayanagi for FIAM Italia, is a global design icon. Another stand­out is the modular Strips collec­tion that Boeri designed for Arflex in 1972. The sofa series, featur­ing a remov­able quilted cover, was awarded the illus­tri­ous Compasso D’Oro prize in 1979. Over her career, Boeri has produced pieces for a number of other leading brands includ­ing Artemide, Knoll, and Magis.
