Hey there, fancy pants. Of course you know that we're on the brink of SF Design Week, and with that comes a whole slew of stylish events. Like one tonight, "a tribute to one of the greatest Italian designers of the 20th century," Vico Magistretti.
Magistretti, an Italian furniture designer and architect, is being honored by San Francisco's Italian Cultural Institute with an exhibition of items selected directly from Magistretti’s studio. Curators had 30,000 sketches and technical drawings, 7,000 photographs, 3,000 documents and a large collection of prototype models to choose from, so prepare to be blown away.
Event organizers say that through "sketches, drawings, photographs, notes and letters, this exhibition tells the story of the professional collaboration between the Milanese master and some of the most important Italian design companies -- Artemide, De Padova, Flou, Oluce, and Schiffini -- which lasted more than twenty years."
The exhibition opens tonight, and runs until July 31. All the Cultural Institute asks is that you RSVP to tonight's opening event here.
