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.
The Artemide light has never been solely a function of seeing, or an opportunity for formal experimentation with lamps as objects. For more than forty years, Artemide has aimed to propose light as a companion to people, as a source of physical pleasure and mental comfort. Artemide has done so, with different work groups, searching through the whole design process, starting with a declaration of values - The human light. Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities.
