This year marks the 50th anniversary of the impeccable Giogali design. The collection was designed by architect Angelo Mangiarotti in 1967 and patented by Vistosi that same year. The creator and designer extraordinaire, Angelo Mangiarotti was born in Milan in 1921.

Mangiarotti graduated in architecture from Milan's Politecnico in 1948. His activity as a designer has been marked by numerous awards, both in the design and construction fields, including the Domus Formica award in 1956, the In/Arch per la Lombardia award in 1962, the Primo Premio Nazionale del Golfo di La Spezia per l'Industrial Design in 1963, the AIP award for industrial construction works in 1972 and many more.

The concept behind the Giogali design is a decorative lighting system based on a single element, the handmade glass link. It is available in different colours, as a standard table, floor, ceiling, pendant and wall fixture. It can also be arranged to offer chandeliers and structures of any dimension.
