Go Your Own Way: Tobia Scarpa

'I appreciate everything I’ve done, while recognising the limits of it.' Architect and designer Tobia Scarpa reflects on his creative career as he approaches his 80th birthday

‘I appreciate everything I’ve done, while recognising the limits of it.’ Architect and designer Tobia Scarpa reflects on his creative career as he approaches his 80th birthday

A chip of the old block Tobia Scarpa certainly isn’t. Son of acclaimed architectural maestro Carlo Scarpa, the innovative designer, who turns 80 next year, was determined from the outset to plough his own creative furrow, in spite of his architectural training. His legacy is a raft of game-changing furniture and lighting pieces that test the bounds of what’s materially and technologically possible. Architonic met up with Mr Scarpa, Jr, at the Cassina showroom during this year’s imm cologne to discuss creativity, family and falling out of love with Alvar Aalto’s tables. Whatever you do, don’t call him an architect. (by Simon Keane-Cowell)
