Il padiglione del vetro
The third design exhibition conceived by Triennale Milano on the basis of its permanent collection is opening in the spaces of Milan Linate air terminal.
We present a selection of pieces from the permanent collection created by great masters of design and architecture – from Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni to Roberto Sambonet, Marco Zanuso, Richard Sapper and Bruno Munari – to remind passengers that travel is also an invitation to learn. The first exhibition revolved around the newly restored opportunity of going on holiday and the concept of starting again. The second exhibition in the Linate terminal was dedicated to the measurement of time in all its dimensions. This exhibition, coinciding with the 60th Salone del Mobile.Milano, is dedicated to glass, a material of choice in Italian design for its artistic versatility and application.
The exhibition displays archive materials and reproductions of the technical drawings for the project that Roberto Menghi developed for the 1951 International Exhibition, whose construction characteristic comprising interior and exterior space, as well as the interplay of natural light, is reminiscent of the Triennale space inside the Linate air terminal.
As in previous exhibitions, the display cabinets in the venue host a selection of objects from the Museo del Design Italiano collection, spanning different genders and generations of Italian and international designers.
