Anniina Koivu (Ed.)
écal & Triest Verlag, 2020
Milanese architect Vico Magistretti started his work as an industrial designer in the 1960s, going on to create more than 300 products and furniture objects. Yet only 70 of these design classics are still in production today. Author Anniina Koivu researched the Magistretti archive and specialist journals to discover more about his work and the manufacturing history of his products. Her interviews with furniture brands and in-house product designers revealed some surprising findings, and twelve of Magistretti’s iconic creations are given in-depth analysis in this book, along with essays on the use of photography in marketing design products and media coverage of furniture over the years.
