A MODERNIST ICON

Created by legendary Italian designer Massimo Vignelli in 1966, the Stendig is considered one the defining pieces of 1960s modernism, celebrated by designers and architects the world over.

TIMELESS MINIMALISM

Vignelli’s pared-back design channels the twin Modernist ideals of simplicity and functionalism, and contributes to an aesthetic that is versatile and effortlessly contemporary.

FEATURED IN THE MoMA

Soon after launch, the Stendig was added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where it remains on display to this day.

MASSIMO VIGNELLI

A true modernist, Vignelli is widely credited for bringing European Modernism to the United States. He was an advocate of functionality in design, favouring a minimalist aesthetic and basing his creations on real user needs

Throughout his career, Vignelli refused to adhere to any one design discipline. His work spanned different fields from branding to package design, furniture design, public signage and more. Vignelli partnered with some of the world’s biggest brands from American Airlines, to IBM, Bloomingdales, Ford and Knoll; though he is perhaps most famous for his 1971 re-design of the New York Subway’s sign system, still used by millions every day.

KNOLL INTERNATIONAL
Poster, 32" × 48", 1967

A year after he designed the distinctive Knoll wordmark, Vignelli created this for the brand. Combining a simple rigorous grid with colorful overprints, it remains one of the most iconic posters in the history of graphic design.

NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY
Map & Signage, 1971

Vignelli was given the task of designing a new map and signage system for the world's busiest metro. A project that marked the advent of information design, it is perhaps Vignelli's most famous piece of work. Adopting a geometric approach to map design, he laid out the subway's stops in a new, more navigable way, an introduced a color-coded, Helvetica-based signage system that endures to this today.

HELLER DESIGN INC
Packaging, 1968

This packaging, for a range of stackable dinnerware designed by Vignelli himself, is alongside the Stendig, another example of the simple, elegant use of Helvetica among the designer's work.

PNEUMATICI PIRELLI & STUDIO VERDE
Posters, 27×19" & 27.5 x 19.5 cm, both 1963

Vignelli's outstanding poster work continued through his career. Both these pieces of work were produced in 1963, and show the range his simple, considered approach could exhibit: from the joy of a young woman free-wheeling on her new Pirelli, to the peaceful ecology of a poster for the City of Milan's urban ecology conference.
