Massimo Vignelli

If you can design one thing, you can design everything, said Massimo Vignelli (b. 1931, Milan) who has worked in a number of areas ranging from package design to furniture design, to public signage, to showroom design through Vignelli Associates, which he co-founded with his wife, Lella. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and later at the Universitŕ di Architettura, Venice. Vignelli went to New York in 1966 to start the New York branch of a new company, Unimark International, which quickly became one of the largest design firms in the world. They designed many recognizable corporate identities, including American Airlines and the New York City Subway. In 1971, Massimo resigned from Unimark, and soon after, he and Lella founded Vignelli Associates.
Heller has created a simple paradigm: good design, industrial production and reasonable prices. The company’s very first product line, in 1971, was Massimo Vignelli’s stacking dinnerware that went on to win a Compasso d’Oro award and is included in the MoMA permanent design collection. They rolled out their furniture line in 1998, beginning with the Bellini Chair, designed by Mario Bellini. It also claimed a Compasso d’Oro. Bellini designed more noteworthy chairs: The UltraBellini Chair (2006), the MB 1, MB 2 and MB 5. Heller continues to explore new technologies in furniture manufacturing.
