Fondazione Sozzani presents “Nanda Vigo, incontri ravvicinati. Arte, Architettura, Design”

Fondazione Sozzani presents exhibition “Nanda Vigo, incontri ravvicinati. Arte, Architettura, Design” in collaboration with Archivio Nanda Vigo, Luca Preti e Glas Italia.

Effervescent and curious, Nanda Vigo (Milan, 1936 - 2020), was an architect, artist and designer of the sixties and was above all capable of a vision of for the future, almost spatial, even in the 2000s.

Through art, architecture and design, the exhibition is a journey through space and time, where every work is environmental and faces space, time and light.  With rare prototypes out of production and unique pieces, the exhibition is divided into three sections dedicated to three different but intertwined design areas:

The first section presents Nanda Vigo as a "master of light", with one of his best-known works of art: "l'Ambiente Cronotopico" of 1968. As in the environments that Vigo created with Lucio Fontana between 1964 and 1968, the Cronotopical Environment, bright and transparent, represents the immersive idea of light as a journey. A metal structure where are inserted transparent industrial glass plates crossed by light that is the unifying element temporal and spatial.

The second focuses on architecture, through some historical pieces.  Very early his collaboration with Gio Ponti, with whom he realized the project of the "Scarabeo sotto la Foglia" in Malo (Vicenza, 1958 to 1968). Emblematic is the first of its immersive architectures, the "ZERO House" in Milan (1959-1962), a house of light with satin glass walls inside which a system of neon lights of different colors alter the perception of space, as in the projects of the Casa Blu (Milan, 1967-71), Gialla (Milan, 1970-1971) and Nera (Milan, 1970).

The third section reflects the complexity of Nanda Vigo’s research as a designer: from the famous mirrors to the "due più" chairs (1971) with their surprising furs that transform a chair into the command chair of an intergalactic carrycot. The path is completed by light games, the historic Golden Gate lamp up to the Hard & Soft collection, the latest complete collection created for an immersive environment in 2019.
