Portrait of Italian designer and architect Paolo Tilche

Paolo Tilche

Italian designer and architect


Paolo Tilche (1925–2003) was born in Egypt. He graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in 1949 and then worked as an architect. In 1950, he began his career as an architect and made numerous residential, industrial, and office designs, but one of his most acclaimed designs is the Hotel Raya in Panarea.

He was a member of the Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (ADI) and became better known for his industrial and furniture designs and for the use of innovative shapes. He designed lighting and glassware (with Barbini), plastic and wooden furniture (with Artform), and kitchenware (with Fratelli Guzzini). read more

In 1955, he opened a Milan-based design store called Arform and dedicated himself to the design industry. The store still sells objects and furniture designed by Tilche and other international designers.
