Vittorio Introini (born 1935) was an Italian Post-war designer. He started designing furniture around the 1960s, being mostly inspired to create international and antihistorical artworks. Moreover, the importance of spatiality and architectural elements is well represented in the work of Introini. These features are also visible in this sideboard. The designer’s ambition to create an international and avant-garde style was eventually possible when he was able to collaborate with Saporiti Company.
