Tribute to Vico Magistretti
19/23 April 2013

Opening: Friday, April 19 - h. 6:30 p.m.

Frattali Perfect Living, sited in via Aurelia 678 in Rome, houses a tribute to Vico Magistretti, from April 19 to April 23. The initiative focuses on the relationship between the famous designer and architect and Flou, the company specialized in sleep since 1978.

On the evening of April 19, Frattali Perfect Living hosts the scientific director of Fondazione Vico Magistretti, Rosanna Pavoni, who presents not only the figure of Vico Magistretti but also the activities of the foundation dedicated to him and supported by Flou as a founding member.
Frattali Perfect Living exposes in its spaces a screen that tells the long-standing collaboration between Vico Magistretti and Flou through photographs, sketches, comments and reflections selected from Studio Magistretti and Flou archives. 

The foundation makes available to Frattali Perfect Living a video dedicated to the famous Nathalie bed, the icon of the collaboration between Magistretti and Flou, prepared by the students of the Design Faculty of the University IUAV of Venice for the exhibition My Magistretti, currently on display at Magistretti studio museum. Finally Flou exposes the scale models of some beds designed by Vico and two original beds which are still in production, the timeless Nathalie and Tadao.
