V. Magistretti

Italian Vico Magistretti (1920 - 2006) was a graduate of the Politecnico di Milano University in 1945 who became a follower of Ernesto Nathan Rogers. He worked initially in urban design in Milan. In the 1950s he moved into the field of mass-produced furniture and lamps. Among others, he worked for the following companies: Artemide, Cassina, De Padova, Flou, Fritz hansen, Kartell, Schiffini. Magistretti's works have been shown in the most important international museums in Europe, USA, and Japan. Some have also been included in various permanent exhibitions museums, such as the MOMA.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
