Aldo Tura (1909-1963)
Aldo Turo started his work as furniture designer in the late 1930s with the foundation of his manufacture in the Italian Lombardy. Following to geometric and straight lines his designs are moving somewhere between Art Deco and modernism and they often remind of sculptural artworks. His furniture and accessories are high-end products, made in flowing grace and highest traditional hand craftsmanship. Main features are the usage of a variety of unusual materials, including eggshell, parchment, goatskin and exotic wood in different colors. Due to the limited copies of the designs of the ‚maestro della pergamena’ his work has become highly collectible. The Brooklyn Museum in New York owns a handful of Tura designs. (lvp)
