Five ECAL Bachelor & Master Photography graduates (Maxime Guyon, Quentin Lacombe, Calypso Mahieu, Nicolas Polli, Jean-Vincent Simonet) interpret five out of production objects designed by Vico Magistretti. A coproduction between Fondazione Vico Magistretti and ECAL. Exhibition curated by Anniina Koivu & Francesco Zanot.
This exhibition looks at five Vico Magistretti designs, all of which are out of production, through the lenses of five young photographers. The selected objects are: a light, a table, a bookshelf and two chairs. All are iconic, with distinct stories to tell, and all five designs are remarkable for their contemporaneity. Even if (currently) not available on the market, each object is an important reference for contemporary design today.
The photographers are Maxime Guyon, Quentin Lacombe, Calypso Mahieu, Nicolas Polli and Jean-Vincent Simonet, all graduates of the Bachelor or Master Photography programmes at ECAL. With their distinct styles, each photographer offers a personal interpretation of the objects. In the process, they generate new desires for the objects that, nonetheless, remain just out of reach.
