An Evening with Massimo and Lella Vignelli

Cocktails and Book Signing: 6 p.m. Lecture: 7 p.m. Topic: "Design is One" For AIGA Members. Italian designer Massimo Vignelli and his partner in life and in design, Lella Vignelli, have pursued much of their careers in the United States while maintaining strong ties to Europe. Their firm, Vignelli Associates, established in New York in 1971, has designed corporate identity programs for Knoll, American Airlines, Bloomingdale’s, Xerox, Lancia, Cinzano, and Ford Motors. The company also designed glassware for Venini, Steuben, and Sasaki and showrooms for Artemide and Hauserman. Massimo Vignelli has created furniture designs for Sunar, Rosenthal, Morphos, and Knoll, including the well-known Handkerchief Chair and Paper Clip table for Knoll. The Vignellis are extremely versatile designers whose work is distinguished by clean, bold lines and a confident use of pure color. There is little that they have not conceived and executed, including directional signage for the New York and Washington, DC, subway systems and for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, designed by the architect Frank O. Gehry in Bilbao, Spain. Examples of their work are included in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
