Clino Trini Castelli (b. 1944) is a major figure on the international design scene. With Castelli Design, his
Milan-based studio, he has spent over 40 years working on the renewal of plastic languages applied to
industrial products, pursuing the concept of “No-form” through instruments of Design Primario and CMF
design of which he was the initiator. As opposed to traditional compositional methods, Clino Castelli has
focused on the design of the more intangible aspects of figuration, like color and material, light and sound,
emphasizing the virtues of a sensorial approach to art and design. His work has received important
European, American and Japanese prizes, including two ADI Compasso d’Oro awards.
