Geometry, Simplicity, Play: The approach of Vico Magistretti - Book launch

MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK 12 - 22 MARCH 2020

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura, RMIT School of Architecture and Urban Design and Vico Magistretti Foundation present Geometry, Simplicity, Play: The approach of Vico Magistretti, a book to celebrate the centenary of the designer Vico Magistretti.

Informed by conceptual simplicity, and often guided by re-interpretative investigations of anonymous objects, Vico Magistretti’s products contributes to everyday engagement by the wider community with design.

This book, co-authored by Mauro Baracco and Louise Wright, addresses a wide range of design fields: architecture, interior design, industrial and product design, and visual communication. It provides a historical re-evaluation of this Milanese architect, and contextualisation and reflection of the relevance of his work in relation to current discourse around regenerative design towards the urban, natural, cultural, social and economic environments.

This event is delivered in conjunction with the design talk, 100 Years of Vico Magistretti.
