Synopses & Reviews
Monguzzi studied graphic design at Geneva in the later 1950s, then typography, photography, and Gestalt psychology in London. In 2003, the Royal Society of Arts in London nominated him Royal Designer for Industry. From his early professional work, first in London and then at the legendary Studio Boggeri in Milan in the early sixties, where Max Huber had arrived from Switzerland twenty years earlier, this monograph retraces the most significant phases of a language that has influenced graphic design well beyond Switzerland, with an impression of great precision and uncontaminated by the recurrent caprices of fashion.
The exhibition will travel to the Vignelli Center for Design Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, before touring various American universities.
