About the Maker: Born in Naples in 1929, Italian architect-designer Cesare Lacca created modernist furniture and metalwork throughout the 1950s. Lacca designed a great many tea carts and serving trolleys in his career as well as magazine racks and coffee tables. Almost all of Lacca’s known designs were created in the 1950s. Today, Cesare Lacca is appreciated for his contribution to the Italian design identity; his ability to fashion brass into the Italian postwar design conversation; and his timeless, highly sought-after serving trolleys.
