After 20 years, the International Exhibition of Triennale di Milano is back in Milan and will take place from April 2th to September 12th. The XXI Triennale, entitled 21st Century. Design after design, aims to investigate the world of design in all its forms to decode the new millennium. The project and the increasing cross-disciplinary design will be the central theme of this “widespread” Triennale, that involves various locations throughout the city of Milan.
Even some of .exnovo creations have been selected – as symbol of a new design – by the curators of 2 exhibitions:
NEW CRAFT (Fabbrica del Vapore, from April 2 to September 12, 2016)
Curated by Stefano Micelli, the exhibition aims to represent the virtuous encounter among artisan know-how, technological innovation and design culture. Not only products will be exhibited, but also processes: alongside objects and installations, a distributed laboratory takes form, capable of giving rise to extraordinary artifacts. At the center of the space, there’s a large X-shaped work table, on which our objects are exposed: the CRIU trays by Alessandro Zambelli, the BOLLE series of objects by Selvaggia Armani, the BIG LOUIE pendant lamp by David Nosanchuk and the installation of PLUNE by Franz Canins.
Rhizaria lamps designed by Lanzavecchia + Wai study are suspended on the right side of the space.
W. Women in Design (Triennale Design Museum, April 2 – February 19, 2017)
The IX edition of the Triennale Design Museum, curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, decides to investigate the design from the point of view of one of the most discussed nodes, the genre, and to chart a new history of women Italian design. Like a river that flows and runs throughout the XX century, the museum exhibition follows a chronological order from the early XX century until today. Among the pieces that makes the history of Women designers, the visitors can admire Rhizaria table lamp, designed for us by designer Francesca Lanzavecchia, and the hanging lamps Cora and Lea, decidedly feminine traits expressions that Serena Confalonieri has designed for us.
