07/05/2020 - The work of visionary architect and designer Vico Magistretti i still considered by many the high-water mark of contemporary living style. With their aesthetic simplicity, his designs have passed the test of time and become “modern classics”. Elegance and personality, innovation and craftsmanship are distinctive traits of his furniture and lighting which are easily recognizable by their unconventional shapes and pioneering functionality.
On the designer’s 100th birthday, DePadova pays homage to Vico Magistretti and his most successful creations for the brand.
The British elegance of a saddle is captured in the design of Louisiana armchair, its sinuous forms and premium materials: cotton and leather cover a structure that combines comfort with groundbreaking functionality.
Echoing British moods and classic English interiors, Rafflesis the archetype of a sofa made for relaxing. Its deep, comfortable seats, even tempered lines and universal elegance are emphasized by small details, such as the lathed wooden feet with swivel castors.
The shape of Louisiana is evoked in Incisa swivel armchair: hand-stitched details decorate the profiles of the structure. It is suitable for both home and office.
With the simplicity of its polypropylene and aluminum structure, with fixed or swivel base, with or without armrests, Silver is a design by Magistretti for DePadova that, thirty years after its introduction, still defines the classic image of a chair.
Vidun table, another classic from the DePadova’s collection, is characterized by a base that resembles a screw and is well visible through the tempered glass. It is available painted in classic black or white, in natural beech or black walnut, and in such vivid colors as violet, turquoise, green, red and yellow. Details can make the difference. With Vidun Magistretti proofed the validity of this affirmation.
