The exhibition is a way to rethink the profound bond that connects us to everyday objects and practices – from sleeping to cooking, banishing darkness to relaxing – for which objects are a means, and at times a shadow.


“The object belongs to its life,” Vico Magistretti said. And what is the life of beds, kitchens, chairs and lamps? We are the ones who shape their existence. The products designed by Magistretti for the partner companies of the Foundation are thus accompanied by interpretations of the infinite instances of our relationship with things, between biological datum, cultural construct and historical determination.

The exhibition will be on view at Fondazione Vico Magistretti until 2020, the centenary of the birth of the Milanese architect, and the tenth year of the activity of the Foundation itself.
