Mario Marenco graduated in architecture in 1957, in Naples, and then obtained research grants in Stockholm and Chicago. In 1960 he opened his own architecture and design studio: Studio DEGW, based in Rome. He has collaborated with the most important Italian car manufacturers for the realization of their exhibition stands.
Before his television debut in 1972 with Cochi and Renato and Enzo Jannacci in the program Il buono e il cattivo, he achieved success in 1970 with the radio program Alto gradimento written with Giorgio Bracardi and conducted by Arbore and Boncompagni themselves. It was Mr. Ramengo in L’altro domenica, a freaky reportage correspondent who shouted “Carmine!” after each reportage. He was the protagonist of the programs Odeon and The Egg and the Cube. In the eighties he participated in several television programs, including Under the Stars (by Magalli, Minellono, Marenco and Boncompagni) where it was produced in Prof. Aristogitone and in several other sketches, and Back all! where he played the character of the child Riccardino.
He has sporadically been an actor for the cinema, bringing his spots to the big screen, but he has also been directed by Dino Risi in a couple of television works. He is the author of humorous books published by Rizzoli, including The Scarecrow in the Swill, Our Special Envoy, Los putanados, Stupefax and The Notebook of Poems.

With The Flag Halyard Chair, Wegner acknowledges the early modernists such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer, and proves that he too masters designs in chromium-plated steel pipes. Despite this gesture, the chair is still decidedly Wegner. The chair’s surfaces are made of plaited flag halyard with the longhaired sheepskin softening the industrial sharpness of the steel, adding comfort.
Although the appearance of the Flag Halyard Chair seems rather futuristic, the basic idea was conceived on a hot summer afternoon in rather trivial circumstances. While the kids were playing in the shallow waters along the beach, Wegner was digging himself into the sand building a comfortable chair to enjoy the holidays. Back in the summerhouse Wegner made the first sketches using the seating angles that he had conceived on the beach.
pp225 comes with pillow straps in the same leather as the neck pillow, and a white or colored sheepskin can be selected.
All sheepskin are produced in Iceland, and are a bi-product of food production. All sheep have lived in the open fields, and hides are processed without the use of chrome.

Atem is a tribute to transparency. The modular structure, essential and geometric in every detail, leaves no room for superfluous. Each material is associated with a compositional element suggested by its features. The steel mesh, almost impalpable, lays bare the nature of the object, creating a veiled playful transparency.

Who better than Luis Mariano to embody a leisurely, carefree – and Basque – way of life. The Mariano Daybed is an invitation to relaxation. The light, tubular structure draws the focus to the solid walnut frame. The traditional webbing under the cushion and the down ticking in both the cushion and bolster provide exceptional comfort.
