He worked as a design consultant for various firms but was also active as an architect an urban planner. Mangiarotti is known for several buildings in the International Modern style, built with prefab elements of reinforced concrete.

Mangiarotti was a visiting professor at the Istituto Superiore di Disegno Industriale in Venice and a visiting lecturer in design at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, among other schools.
Mangiarotti studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic, and worked with designer Bruno Morassutti after he graduated. In 1960, he opened his own practice and joined the Associazone per il Disegno Industriale. Mangiarotti’s creations include the "Lesbo" and "Saffo" lamps, notable for organically shaped shades of hand-blown Murano glass, as well as lighting for Artemide, the "Giogali" lighting range for Vetreria Vistosi, and several sculptural glass vases and marble bowls for Knoll.
