An Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Art and winner of multiple Compasso d'Oro awards, Vico Magistretti is renowned across the world for his innovative, refined and contemporary approach to design.
Originally training as an architect at the Politecnico di Milan, Vico Magistretti began his career in architecture, town planning and industrial design. Working alongside the architect Paolo Chessa at the studio run by his father, Pier Giulio, Magistretti went on to design iconic landmarks such as the Church of Santa Maria Nascente in Milan, the Tanimoto House in Tokyo and the Bianchi House in Ghiffa, as well as turning his skilled hand to lighting and furniture design.
Experimenting with shape, form and function, each piece Magistretti designed was ahead of its time. Going on to collaborate with design houses such as Artemide, Cassina, De Padova, Fritz Hansen and Kartell, Magistretti created a host of pieces that became instant icons. From the Eclisse Lamp to the Teti Wall Light, his work has been featured in exhibitions and permanent collections in museums all over the world, including New York’s MoMA.
