About the designer:
Self-taught, he began his activity as a product designer in 1958, producing designs in wide-ranging fields of industrial mass production: household appliances, car chassis, sanitaryware, machine tools, electrical equipment, musical instruments, televisions, bags, hi-fi systems, furniture, lighting devices. Of particular importance is his work in the sector of machine tools and work equipment, with carefully studied ergonomics (watches for Borletti including Sfericlock, which won the Compasso d`Oro ADI in 1964 and became part of MoMA’s permanent collection, and the numerically controlled machine tool Auctor for Olivetti, Compasso d`Oro ADI winner in 1967).
He worked with different design companies. He was president of ADI (1971-1973) and ICSID (1979-1981). He also furthered an understanding of design in countries such as the Soviet Union, the United States and Japan. Besides his fervent professional activity he also worked to increase awareness of the problems of industrial design, holding lectures at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm and at the ISIA in Rome.
Bonetto is the only Italian designer who never put his name to architectural projects, always being exclusively interested in mass production. After his death, a Compasso d’Oro was dedicated to him in 1991 for the body of his work, which continues today with the studio Bonetto Design, coordinated by his son Marco. Rodolfo Bonetto’s collaboration with Driade began in 1971. less
