I have always considered my independence in my work as well as in my life as one of my biggest achievements.
Gabriella Crespi 1922–2017
An icon of Italian mid-century design, Gabriella Crespi left her mark on the world both through her poetic, sculptural designs and her ethereal persona. A unique duality exists in her work combining geometric forms with sensuous lines that exude glamour while still remaining humble. Her designs are marked by fine craftsmanship, created by a skilled Milanese work force with whom Crespi worked closely with, in a range of materials including brass, bronze, glass, bamboo, and Lucite. Many of her most popular designs are unique and were released in small quantities making her pieces highly sought after.
