Born in Florence in 1938, architect and designer. A critic on magazines such as Domus, Interni, Casabella and Modo, he was one of the founders of the Domus Academy and is one of the members of the EEC Commission for the promotion of the European design. He has worked for Cassina, Vitra, Zanotta. The inevitable result of Andrea Branzi's unusual family history (he has three sisters married to three brothers), the designer's passion for family trees has led him to create a small family of connected products revolving around the concept of "good matches": a catalogue of faces "that collects (almost) all the examples of men present at the end of the millennium." The large 1-metre vase, made in 1999 in a limited edition of 99 pieces, is the patriarch of this family. Its reduction has resulted in a small vase, 20 centimetres high, this time in a limited edition of 99,999 pieces, of which each is unique.
