Nuvola Rossa

Design Vico Magistretti

DYNAMIC ELEGANCE

A design bookcase in solid wood, indisputable example of function simplified through an interplay of shapes that narrate an elegant, essential and well laid-out set of principles typical of designs by Vico Magistretti.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1977

Designed by Vico Magistretti, this bookcase with its simple, clean-cut lines was the outcome of a detailed analysis of the classic model featuring side supports and shelves. This piece is an icon of design, yet also a veritable invention in terms of construction: the diagonal bracing struts become the support structure, and house the shelves, eliminating the need for side supports. Putting the focus on the hinges and the six shelves, the structure, which can be folded away, can also be used as a room-divider. Its elegant and primary aesthetic, timeless and easy to read, has made the Nuvola Rossa an undisputed design icon since 1977. It has been imitated several times as an example of simplified function achieved via an interplay of shapes.

Vico Magistretti

In 1920 Magistretti was born in Milan, the city in which he graduated in architecture in 1945, and where his professional career has spun its story ever since, chiefly in the fields of architecture, town planning and industrial design. The first recognition of his work came in 1948, when he won the Gran Premio at the 8th Triennale.  After that came almost forty years of activity with other prizes and awards in recognition of Magistretti’s work in various sectors in different countries.
