Biography

Italian designer Nanda Vigo started her own atelier in Milan in 1959, and soon after began to exhibit her designs in many galleries and museums around Italy and Europe. She later earned her architecture degree and began formulating her own theory of space and time, autonomous to artistic practice. Her more recent designs have stemmed from this exploration, focusing on sensory impulses through materials such as glass, mirrors, and neon lights. She has famously collaborated with Italian designer Gio Ponti, as well as Arte Povera pioneers Lucio Fontana and Piero Manzoni; she was featured in multiple iterations of the Triennale di Milano, as well as the Venice Biennale in 1982.
