Osvaldo Borsani joined his father, Gaetano Borsani’s workshop as a furniture designer after completing his studies in 1937. Osvaldo inherited the workshop, Arredamento Borsani that for some time was also named Atelier Borsani Varedo, after his fathers’ death. In 1953, Osvaldo and his twin brother, Fulgencio, would launch Tecno, which would become known for its experimental approach to furniture design. Osvaldo was Tecno’s main designer for over 30 years, and a main part of his work throughout the 1940’s to 1950’s featured larger furniture pieces of case goods, storage pieces and seating. Their shift towards more modern office furniture sets took place in the 1960’s, which is when the company began to broaden its concepts and collaborate with other designers. Today, many of Tecno’s and Osvaldo Borsani’s pieces are on permanent display at museums like, the MoMA in New York City, and the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
