In our recent 'Berlin Beauty' post, we featured a quite dramatic apartment stuffed full of design classics, one of which was designed by Osvaldo Borsani.  Not familiar with Borsani's designs?  Then take a look at what all the fuss is about ..............

In 1953, Borsani and his twin brother Fulgencio, founded a firm called Tecno, which became known for its technology and research based approach to furniture design.  In 1955, Tecno issued one of its best known pieces, the P40 lounge chair, featuring rubber arms and the ability to assume 486 distinct postures.
