Geometry, Simplicity, Play
Exhibiting Vico Magistretti
Mauro Baracco and Louise Wright
Following and extending from the Vico Magistretti-Travelling Archive exhibition at the Melbourne Design Week 2019, the book Geometry, Simplicity, Play: Exhibiting Vico Magistretti relates this exhibition to Magistretti’s design approach and theoretical thought through texts and illustrations that discuss the above exhibition installation and projects by Magistretti, from both industrial design and architecture fields. The book focused in particular to the sense of ‘conceptual simplicity’, playfulness and geometry that inform Magistretti’s work, is also part of the extended discourse that is undertaken internationally in 2020 over the centenary year of Magistretti’s birth date (1920-2006).
