Illustrated words
Eleven quotes for twenty-six projects
03.03.2010 / 25.02.2011

The exhibition, which began at the public opening of Fondazione studio museo Vico Magistretti, sets out to portray the richness of Vico's works, and hence the archive itself, through the architect’s own words, illustrated by the drawings on display.

The exhibition is set out along a section of eleven columns, each of which contains a quote from the architect’s own writings and interviews. Alongside, the sketches on display illustrate and give meaning to his words. The projects include some of Vico Magistretti’s best-known pieces, such as the Eclisse and Atollo lamps, Nathalie bed, Maralunga armchair and Vidun table.

The exhibition is complemented with a catalogue entitled Illustrated words, printed by the foundation.
