Footnotes

  • Sabbatini was a self-taught designer who became widely known during the 1950s through his association with Gio Ponti. In 1956 Sabattini's designs were featured in 'Domus' magazine and at an exhibition in Paris organised by Ponti. During the same year he was appointed as a design director at the prestigious Christofle Orfèverie, where he continued until 1963.

    Sabattini designed the 'Como' tea and coffee service in 1956. It remains his most celebrated design and was in production from 1959 until 1970.
