I remember going to Magistretti’s studio to talk about him designing a new handle.‎ Sitting around a big table that practically took up the entire room, he sketched the Sibilla right before my eyes, practically fixing its definite form there and then.‎ His idea was to make it an ergonomic object that also had verve.‎ As he described how interesting he found the shape of a bone, he steadily drew one.‎ Soon after, he began musing about how the dynamic effect he wished to obtain for the handle could be expressed by slicing off the two extremities.‎ Seeing that they weren’t symmetrical, the cuts needed to have different inclinations.‎ “Try to make a sample along the lines of these sketches,” he said to me.‎ “Let’s see if you succeed in expressing my idea.‎ ” By the third prototype, he was satisfied.‎ Sibilla was born.‎ This is how Vico liked to work.‎ He sought immediate answers from technicians so that his ideas would be made to their best potential.‎ Antonio Olivari
