Architect and lighting and furniture designer Tito Agnoli was born in 1931 in Lima, Peru. Having family in Italy, he moved there to study in the years following the Second World War. After studying painting under the guidance of the modernist artist Mario Sironi, Agnoli enrolled at the Milan Polytechnic in 1949 to study architecture.
In the 1950s, 60s, and 70s Agnoli designed prolifically in the fields of furniture and lighting, creating seating designs for Italian luxury brands such as Arflex, Bonacina, Matteo Grassii, Poltrona Frau, Ycami, and lamp designs and chandeliers for Oluce.
