Triennale Museo del Design Italiano, in the evocative spaces of the Curva on the ground floor of the Triennale, presents a selection of the most iconic and representative pieces of Italian design, for the first time in a permanent exhibition.
The works on show are some of the 1,600 objects in the Triennale collection, chosen by an advisory committee that brings together some of the top names in the world of Italian design and architecture: Paola Antonelli, Andrea Branzi, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Piero Lissoni, Claudio Luti, Fabio Novembre, and Patricia Urquiola.
The simple, linear display aims to show off the works to their best advantage, in chronological order, and provides insights into the history, creative period and context in which each work was designed.
Eternal pieces like The Arco by Achille Castiglioni (Flos), Lady by Marco Zanuso (Arflex), the UP5-6 by Gaetano Pesce (B&B), the Proust armchair by Alessandro Mendini.
Pieces that you can find on the market nowadays, that have passed through history: like the Moon Boots, by Giancarlo Zanatta, a walking object that never looses glamour.
