Modern Bio: Massimo and Lella Vignelli

Modern Decor

I’ve decided to do something a little different. No bulleted history. No list of works. I’m going to give you some resources to check out. You should take a little time today to do so. Massimo and Lella Vignelli were too COOL to even fit within my standard layout of the modern bios. How cool? Ever ridden on the New York City subway? Massimo designed one of the most beloved versions of the subway map. They’ve worked in furniture design. Graphic design. Branding. Identity. Industrial design. Basically they did it all.

“We like design to be design to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant, and above all timeless.”

Take a piece of history and amazing Vignelli design home today from 2Modern.
