Achille Castiglioni studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic and graduated in 1944. He joined his two brothers Livio (1911-1979) and Pier Giacomo (1913-1968) in their design studio in Milan. As with some of their younger architectural colleagues (Ettore Sottsass or Marco Zanuso), the lack of architectural projects led the Castiglioni brothers to develop design projects for Italian manufacturers wishing to revive their business after the war. Livio left the family studio in 1952. During the 1950s and 1960s, the brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni created a large number of objects for manufacturers such as Flos, BBB Bonachina Italia and Zanotta.
