Top Italian Designer Ico Parisi

Ico Parisi is one of our favourite Italian Modern designers. If we want to get some inspiration on vintage furniture, we go through the book of his design pieces. His work is characterized by their Italian Mid-Century Modern aesthetic. Usually using soft woods, often cut into curved or boomerang shapes. His designs are classy and elegant and are a great addition to any interior. Our favourite item by Ico Parisi is the hanging corner shelf. It is hard to believe his pieces are 60-70 years old. 

Ico and Luisa Parisi

Ico Parisi is one of the most famous architects and interior designers from the Italian Mid-Century period. He was born in Palermo in 1916 as son of an art teacher, however spend most of his life in Como. Although, he already designed before the war; he is more recognized as one of the key personalities of Italian postwar design.

In 1947, Ico Parisi married Luisia Aiana. She was an architect and an apprentice of Gio Ponti. In 1948 they opened their own design studio. Together with his wife, Luisa, he designed amazing furniture that is still very popular amongst collectors and design-lovers.


They designed for Cassina and for De Bagis, MIM Roma and Stildomus. In 1955 Parisi was nominated for the Compasso d’Oro with Model 691 and Model 839 chairs for Сassina.

This bar is amazing. Beautiful and exactly as described. A custom crate (which was a work of art itself) was built in order to ship the piece to the U.S. The bar arrived in perfect condition without a scratch. I will say that take the crate apart was not easy and was a two-person job. But worth it in the end
