Plinio Il Giovane
Mario Prandina began his artistic journey in a small workshop in downtown Milan, near the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. Surrounded by artists and designers, Plinio il Giovane was founded in 1975, with the goal of designing and producing ethical and ecologically-sourced furniture. Prandina sought to create conscious furniture designs by repurposing old furniture and innovating them with traditional crafting methods. This concept has become the hallmark of Plinio’s creative brand and Prandina’s advocacy mindset.
