This exhibition, curated by Mauro Baracco, documents material from the archive of Italian architect and product, industrial and furniture designer Vico Magistretti (1920-2006), and re-evaluates and re-positions it in relation to conditions that inform current design cultures. Key figures from industry and commercial enterprises, associated in particular to the fields of furniture and product design, are involved to support some collateral events and provoke discourse around possible future environmental design scenarios precursored by the Milanese architect. This exhibition continues after Melbourne Design Week at Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne from 27 March to 18 April. This event is supported by Euroluce Australia, Boffi Studio Sydney and Artemide Australia.
