Osvaldo Borsani was an Italian architect and designer. His father, Gaetano Borsani, was a noted furniture craftsman and his twin brother Fulgencio would be his collaborator and business partner. He studied at the Politecnico di Milano and after completing his degree, he joined the family business, Atelier Varedo (later Arredamento Borsani) as a furniture designer. Throughout the 1940s and early 1950s, Borsani produced a large body of work including case goods, storage pieces and seating. Especially noteworthy was a 1946 wall-mounted shelving system. In 1953, Osvaldo and Fulgencio founded a firm called Tecno which, as its name suggests, became known for its technology and research-based approach to furniture design. In 1955, Tecno issued one of its best known pieces, the P40 lounge chair. It featured rubber arms and could assume 486 distinct postures, the D70, a sofa version, was also manufactured. Osvaldo Borsani acted as the company’s sole designer for over 30 years, it was not until the mid-1980s that Gae Aulenti, Norman Foster and others began to contribute designs.
