Milan: February 23-June 30, 2016
After the success of its preview during Milan Design Week in collaboration with Borsa Italiana, Museo del Design 1880-1980 is now opening its door once again in the new location of Via Borsi 9 conveniently situated between the metro stations of Porta Genova and Romolo in the Navigli District of Milan.
MUSEO DEL DESIGN 1880-1980 aims to represent the most crucial moments of the evolution of Italian and International industrial product design, highlighting nuances and contrasts through the different experiences that have generated contemporary design. The collection was put together and curated with the clear aim of creating a sound didactic tool to teach the history and development of the sector and to guide the visitor on an imaginary voyage through the evolution of creativity applied to objects. The efforts of the founder and co-curators were strengthened by the help and vision of great names such as Dino Gavina, Ettore Sottsass, Ignazio Gardella and many other designers, who contributed to the realization of a “theatrical museum” where every stage is a scene, a chapter in a book, able to generate a consistent and unbiased vision, chronological and accurate in its references to the most important protagonists of world design.
