Designed by Vico Magistretti, Vico Due is being reissued in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the master. He designed it in 1997 in the Fritz Hansen style office, where he wanted to develop his woodworking skills. “From the start, this chair was the result of a profound collaboration between Fritz Hansen and Vico Magistretti. In 1997, Magistretti was at the top of his career. This design is notable for a simplicity and strength that reflect the designer’s confidence,” says Christian Andresen, art director of the Danish company.
Beauty and functionality coexist in this stackable chair with a contemporary look and unique appearance thanks to the distinctive yet minimal form created by the joint between the arms and legs. The legendary Milanese architect and designer was inspired by a sketch of the letter “Z” that he drew on a piece of paper. The sign was then developed into a sinuous pair of armrests, formed from the same piece of tubular steel as the rear legs, which frame the simple line formed by the seat and back. In the renewed version, the addition of pads to the armrests ensures greater comfort, while the black paintwork of the tubular chromed steel structure adds a modern touch. A piece of furniture with a timeless design, perfect for the workplace and shared spaces.
