Nanda Vigo (1936-2020), Italian artist and designer, pioneer of a futuristic "neon aesthetic", is one of the most famous female signatures in the history of design. Great lover of science fiction and esotericism, her research focuses on the relationship between light and space, understood by her with almost mystical facets and declined in fascinating installations poised between art, design and architecture. Her training took place precisely in the field of architecture, inspired by the youthful discovery of the works of Giuseppe Terragni and perfected with studies in Lausanne and with a period of apprenticeship in the USA at the studio of the great Frank Lloyd Wright. Her artistic career began in the late 1950s and she would find great inspiration in the style of her friend Lucio Fontana. Another artist with whom she had a very close relationship was Piero Manzoni, with whom she also lived an intense love story that left an important mark in the careers of both and which will last until his premature death. In the 1960s she became an exponent of the avant-garde movement ZERO, born in Germany, whose ideas she disseminated in Italy also through the design of the Zero House in Milan. Shortly after she had the opportunity to collaborate with Gio Ponti for the interiors of her house under the leaf near Vicenza, while she bears only her signature the iconic house-museum of Remo Brindisi, considered her masterpiece. Since the 1960s, Nanda Vigo has also measured herself with mass-produced products and her creations appear today in the catalogs of brands such as Acerbis, Driade, Glas Italia, Arredoluce and JCP Universe. Always highly appreciated, in recent years Nanda Vigo has been the protagonist of ever-increasing attention and esteem, culminating in various exhibitions dedicated to her and in a Compasso d'Oro for Lifetime Achievement awarded in 2020.
