O Massimo! You always remind us that we can be smarter. And your wife Lella, pictured above with you, always reminds us that we can dress better.

In this article from the Independent, Vignelli doles out his ever-inspirational rant about the state of design. He calls for work that’s responsible, simple, timeless, elegant, and not vulgar–and he approves of Ikea for mass-marketing good design. He’s even got their bookshelves in his bedroom.

Michael Bierut made us realize just how many things the Vignellis have designed with his description of a hypothetical journey that would keep you in constant contact with their creations. That sent us on a little Google quest–and what do you know–we were eating off Massimo-ware for most of our childhoods.
