There’s something particularly pleasing about a designer’s iconic pieces being shown in their own studio, years after they were first launched – especially when the creative in question is Italian design legend Achille Castiglioni.

Last month, design brand Tacchini, which earlier this year reissued three striking furniture designs by Castiglioni – his ‘Sancarlo’ armchair and sofa, and his ‘Babela’ stacking chair – exhibited these new-old pieces in remarkable Milan atelier, itself a piece of 20th-century design history.

Here are some photographs of the work in situ.
