Description

Official Selection, Architecture & Design Film Festival, New York 2012

Two of the world’s most influential designers, Lella and Massimo Vignelli’s work covers such a broad spectrum that even those who don’t know their names are familiar with their work. Adhering to their self-proclaimed motto, “If you can’t find it, design it,” their achievements in industrial and product design, graphic and publication design, corporate identity, architectural graphics, and exhibition, interior, and furniture design have earned worldwide respect and numerous international awards for more than 40 years. After Massimo brought the Helvetica typeface to America in 1965, he and Lella moved on to a diverse array of projects, including New York’s subway signage and maps; the interior of Saint Peter’s Church at Citicorp Center; Venini lamps; Heller dinnerware; furniture for Poltrona Frau; and branding for Knoll International, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ford and American Airlines. Luminaries from the world of design—from architects Richard Meier and Peter Eisenman to graphic designers Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut, and Jessica Helfand – bring us into the Vignellis’ world, capturing their intelligence and creativity, as well as their humanity, warmth, and humour.

Also screening with Sunday Salons: A thought provoking documentary, a glass of wine, and a stimulating conversation with fellow film lovers every Sunday in October.

Co-presented by the Design Exchange.
