The Fuori Catalogo Projects by Vico Magistretti

A lamp, a table, a bookcase and two chairs, all no longer in production, but each with an extraordinarily relevant story to tell. The five objects were selected to inspire five different projects at the Vico Magistretti by the five young photographers at the center of the exhibition "Fuori Catalogo", organised in a co-production with ECAL - École Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne. Maxime Guyon, Quentin Lacombe, Calypso Mahieu, Nicolas Polli and Jean-Vincent Simonet offer five highly personal interpretations of the subjects of the exhibition, each of which, though off the market, represents an important reference point for contemporary design. A reading room will host ample documentation from the historical archive of the Fondazione regarding each of the selected objects, inviting visitors to enhance their understanding of their history and consider the relevance of these “out of production” works by the designer from Milan.
