Vignelli Center Fall Open House

Students look at archive artifacts in the Vignelli Center.

"If you can design one thing, you can design everything."

The Vignellis were the rare type of designers who worked across all design disciplines and often for the same client. The Vignelli Center for Design Studies' next round of Open Houses will focus on the theme “Design is One.” We’ll be focusing on the clients for which the Vignellis did it all. Graphic identity and publications. Products and furniture. Interiors and exhibitions. See how “Design is One” comes to life through the archives. 

Want to see original artifacts from the archives but don’t know where to start? Join us at our Open Houses to have a look! No appointment required. Stay for a few minutes or stay for hours. 

The fall Open House is scheduled for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on both Sept. 20 and 21. Spring Open Houses are set for March 20 and 21, 2024. 

As always, our galleries are open to the public and feature the greatest hits of the design work of Massimo and Lella Vignelli. But for the Open Houses, our archivist will be digging deep into the archives to show you one-of-a-kind original sketches and other artifacts of the Vignelli design process. You can see the designs that you know and love but expect many surprises even if you are a Vignelli “superfan!”
