Luisa Casati (Milan 1881 – 1957 London )
Luise Casati was an Italian heiress, muse, art collector, fashion icon and high society lady at the beginning of the 20th century in Europe. Their banquets, dancing balls, garden parties, dinners, fox hunts, dancing parties, and costume festivals of European high and money aristocracy were famous and filled the social columns of the newspapers. The more extravagant and scandalous their life and love stories were, the greater the fascination that came from her.
(Mailand 1856 - 1940)
Carlo Bugatti was an Italian designer, decorator and architect. He was the brother of Luigia Bugatti, who had been the wife of his friend, fellow student and painter Giovanni Segantini since 1880. He also had a friendship with the composer Giacomo Puccini. The son of the architect and sculptor Giovanni Luigi Bugatti studied architecture at Milan Accademia di Brera and from 1875 at the Paris Académie des Beaux-Arts. In 1880 he married Teresa Lorioli and began his professional career in Milan as an architect, but he later devoted himself to the furniture design, which soon gave him great recognition. Until 1904 he maintained a workshop on Via Castelfiardo 6 in Milan.
With his personal version of the art nouveau he created very individual and extravagant furniture, which mostly remained individual pieces. Later, simpler furniture was also produced in series.
Bugatti's artistic works were inspired by Asian, especially Turkish and Japanese, ornaments and characters. His style, which was influenced by the new art, differed by the use of various noble materials.
