THE VOGA PROMISE
Iconic designs. Uncompromised quality. Impressive prices.
- Produced by Vico Magistretti in 1977
- Combines multiple technical innovations of the period
- Fully removable and customisable shelves
Vico Magistretti was a designer simply unlike any other, and the diagonally braced, folding construction of his 114 Nuvola Rossa Bookshelf is another incomparable piece. The simple, but ultimately complex, symmetry has captivated design-lovers for decades. That form remains unforgettable because it emerged by addressing a specific functional and space-saving issue. We produced this VOGA.com version because we love how it can be both incredibly modest, yet extraordinarily distinctive. We know the subtle light wood grain will blend with any bright or bold space.
The story behind the Vico Magistretti 114 Nuvola Rossa Bookshelf
Vico Magistretti's design practice has always focused on the city of Milan and improving the conditions of its inhabitants. The efficiency, function, elegance and affordability of the 114 Nuvola Rossa Bookshelf is driven by this desire. Every point of innovation, of which there are many, is focused on urban life and how we can optimise our interiors for the demands of innovative city living. The problems afflicting urban centres still persist today. If it wasn't for the distinctive period hallmarks of contemporary Italian design, the piece could have been designed yesterday.

About the Designer
1920 - 2006 (Italy)
By the time Vico Magistretti was 30 he had won the Milanese Triennale, contributed to QT8 (the late-1940s experiment in social organization and urban planning) and worked as a highly respected architect in his father’s practice. Born in Milan in 1920, Magistretti’s history is permanently tied to the city of his birth and its post-war reconstruction. His willingness to blend styles and approaches, without losing a unique vision makes him one of the most distinctive figures of Italian modern design. He remains one of Italy’s most unusual designers, something particularly apparent in his industrial designs; intensely practical and always addressing the social issues he observed in Milan. Magistretti continued to research, teach, travel and design until his death in 2006.
"“There is no excuse for designing ugly things. In that sense work is always conditioned, but it is born to be conditioned, a hypothetical work seems to me to be something absolutely stupid."
