We don't know if there's more to come (could there possibly?!), but you can use the weekend to catch up on all your reading from the past week's incredible extravaganza on Design Observer celebrating Lella and Massimo Vignelli on the occasion of the opening of the Vignelli Center for Design Studies up at RIT. Here's the intro to the first post:
If as Mark Twain once wrotethe Creator made Italy from designs by Michaelangelo, then who made the rest of the world?
Lella and Massimo Vignelli may not have made it, but they sure as hell designed a lot of it.
From typography to textiles, furniture to flatware, there is little that has not been touched by Lella and Massimo Vignelli. Brightly colored stackable mugs. Elegant printed materials for so many institutions. Books and magazines, tables and environments, jewelry, logos, posters, toys, maps. Think everything old is new again? You might be right. In the Vignelli galaxy, black is the new black.
