November 6, 1978 in Barto, Pennsylvania, United States, was an Italian-born artist and modern furniture designer, best known for the Diamond chair [1]. this chair's commercial success was immediate and in the mid-1950s the chairs sold so well, that the royalties he received for them allowed him to devote himself exclusively to sculpture; including pieces of drone music which he exhibited as "sound sculptures".
