View of the "Design: Vignelli" exhibition, Benetton Galleries, Vignelli Center for Design Studies, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York, United States. The "Design: Vignelli" exhibition opened in 2010 at the Vignelli Center for Design Studies, which is also home to their entire professional archives. The exhibition mirrors the "Design: Vignelli" exhibition which toured nine countries between 1989-1993. As with the previous iteration, Lella Vignelli and Massimo Vignelli designed the displays, wrote the descriptive text, and curated the artifacts for the exhibition. It is the last exhibition designed by the Vignellis that is still open to the public.

Text from design: Vignelli exhibition label:
Furniture Design
We design furniture either because we cannot find in the marketplace what we need for a specific use, or because we are asked by a furniture manufacturer to design something for them. In the first instance, we select the materials; in the second, we articulate the manufacturer’s resources, be they wood, plastic, leather, marble, or others. The manufacturer establishes certain parameters related to his market position and we work within or beyond them, trying to solve the problem at hand according to our interpretation of it.
