For the second year in a row, The Art of Living exhibition was held from 14 to 26 April at Triennale di Milano.
An appointment to discover the evolving ways of living the house.
The exhibition is dedicated to the relationship between design, decoration and home spaces, an opportunity to tell how you are evolving the ways of home living, becoming, warm and personal, animated by the harmonic relationship between color, design and decoration.
The exhibition was designed by one of Italy’s leading Interior Design Magazines of Corriere delle Sera’s “Living” editorial team, set up by Migliore+Servetto Architects, and styling by Alessandro Pasinelli
The Art of Living showcased a “house-theater” in which a series of domestic settings were created in “open” rooms.
Every room exhibited a different feel, where a collection of digital wallpaper designed by 35 international designers and architects were displayed.
That turned the exhibition into an uninterrupted flow of textures, colors, and sceneries, making the design the main character of a charismatic and strong experience.
There were 12 domestic settings that consider contemporary design at the centre.
35 international designers and architects designed a pattern, a paper wall 2.0 as expression of their creative vision.
The projections of “digital tapestry” turned the exhibition into a psychedelic Wunderkammer, an uninterrupted flow of color, images and textures that make design the main character of an engaging and emotional experience.

Main partner Citroën with the new C4 Cactus showcased at the exhibition as an imaginative soul garage-installation.
Citroën invited the audience to share the thrill of this psychedelic wunderkammer: a continuous flow of colors, images and textures that make design the protagonist of an immersive experience.
This design object, in effect, fits in the context of the exhibition to describe the evolution of ways to live the House, through the relationship between contemporary design objects and their environments.
