Exhibition at SpazioFMG on designer Nanda Vigo “Opere abitate da opere. 1959 – 1972”, the retrospective of Nanda Vigo, famous Milanese designer and architect, opens on 17 December at SpazioFMG, Iris Ceramica and FMG gallery and showroom in Via Bergognone, Milan, space curated by the Floornature editorial team. 

The living space seen through the eyes of designer, architect and artist Nanda Vigo, who worked in Milan from the late '50s until now. The exhibition “Opere abitate da opere. 1959 - 1972” (works inhabited by works) is a retrospective of Nanda Vigo, coming almost a year after the one of Cini Boeri, another big name in the world of 20th century architecture.

Luca Molinari, project director at SpazioFMG, gallery and showroom of Iris Ceramica and FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti, curated by the Floornature team proposes an interpretation of the work of Nanda Vigo through auteur photographs from the period, because unfortunately many of the interiors she created have since disappeared; the exhibition space is enriched with items of design, including the “Golden Gate” lamp for Arredoluce (1969-70), the “Top” sofa for Fai International (1970) and the “Due Più” chair for More Coffee (1971). These furnishings were provided by the Nanda Vigo archive and help us take a dive back into the '60s and '70s, amazingly just as relevant to our present-day way of living and the way we use homes as they were when they were designed.

The exhibition “Opere abitate da opere” opens on 17 December with the vernissage at 6.30 pm and will stay open until 12 February from 4 pm to 7 pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
