In Focus: Vico Magistretti
Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco

The Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and Fondazione Vico Magistretti are pleased to announce In Focus: Vico Magistretti, an exhibition paying tribute to one of the greatest Italian designers of the 20th century, Vico Magistretti. As part of SF Design Week, the Galleries of the Institute will host an exhibition made possible by the collaboration with the Milan-based Fondazione Vico Magistretti, directed by Rosanna Pavoni.

Through sketches, drawings, photographs, notes and letters, this exhibition tells the story of the professional collaboration between the Milanese master and some of the most important Italian design companies. Most of the materials for this exhibition come directly from Magistretti’s studio. From among the countless sketches, photographs, and technical drawings, a substantial number were carefully chosen by Fondazione Magistretti especially for this traveling exhibition. The visual documentation will be complemented by objects and prototype models designed by Magistretti for leading Italian companies like Artemide, De PadovaFlouOluce and Schiffini

Thanks to Arkitektura in Situ and DZINE of San Francisco for loaning designs for the project.
