Vico Magistretti born in 1920 in Milan, inherited a passion for architecture from his family, already renowned and active in the field and from which he took inspiration for his future studies at the Milan Polytechnic, where he graduated in 1945. In his professional activities, Magistretti was involved in architecture, urban planning and industrial design. In 1948 he obtained the first recognition for his work, winning the Grand Prize of the VII Triennale, after this he counted countless awards that affirmed his work in different fields of activity and in various countries around the world. He has participated in exhibitions and given lectures in Europe, America and Japan. In addition, some of the objects he designed are still in the permanent collections of MoMa in New York and 13 other American and European museums. Magistretti's approach to design, which makes him one of the most important fathers of Italian design, is based on process principles, foremost among which is the very close interaction with manufacturing companies right from the concept and design definition of the product. Innovative research and experimentation with materials, spatial solutions and forms are the basis of his design.
