Seminal figure of the Surrealist Movement and mentor of various exponents of Abstract Expressionism, Roberto Matta (1911-2002) is one of the most interesting artists of 20th century, with his production between art and design.

In the mid-’60s, he started a collaboration with Dino Gavina that led to the creation of iconic design pieces such as Malitte (1966) and for the Ultramobile collection (1971) Margarita, Sacco Alato and MAgriTTA.
