Designed in 1977 at the peak of Italian modern design, Vico Magistretti's Atollo lamp was an instant success. Two years after debuting it won the Compasso d'Oro and has been featured in design museums and art galleries around the world ever since. The key to its success is perhaps due to its striking balance of strength and fragility. It is as hard-wearing as Magistretti and his contemporaries would always demand, but also maintains a delicate, lightweight quality that is simply unlike any other design of the period, or arguably since.
1920 - 2006 (Italy)
By the time Vico Magistretti was 30 he had won the Milanese Triennale, contributed to QT8 (the late-1940s experiment in social organization and urban planning) and worked as a highly respected architect in his father’s practice. Born in Milan in 1920, Magistretti’s history is permanently tied to the city of his birth and its post-war reconstruction. His willingness to blend styles and approaches, without losing a unique vision makes him one of the most distinctive figures of Italian modern design. He remains one of Italy’s most unusual designers, something particularly apparent in his industrial designs; intensely practical and always addressing the social issues he observed in Milan. Magistretti continued to research, teach, travel and design until his death in 2006.
“There is no excuse for designing ugly things. In that sense work is always conditioned, but it is born to be conditioned, a hypothetical work seems to me to be something absolutely stupid."
