In 1959 Tobia Scarpa works constantly close to his father and Gavina, demonstrating himself since the beginning, extraornary clever, so much clever that the models realized in that period will accompany him in his following works.In fact, those years represent the origin of all his prestigious art: some of his works, determined actually a radical renewal in the world of designers.
Architect and designer Tobia Scarpa graduated in 1969 at the Univesity of Venice and in the same year won a "Compasso d'Oro" prize for his "Soriana" chair. He has since been awarded many other design prizes and many of his desigs can also be found on show in some of the world's key museums, including his "Libertà" chair on show at the Louvre. As an architect he has worked for both public and private clients including the Benetton Group for whom he famously designed the industrial area and production plants in Castrette di Villorba (Treviso). Even today, the Benetton facilities are still held up as an example of aesthetic-functional excellence, one of the world's most exciting pieces of industrial architecture.
