Broken Nature @ Salone Milan 2019

Broken Nature @ Salone Milan 2019

The theme of the 22nd Triennale di Milano is, as the title suggests, in-depth examination of the ties between humans and our natural environment, now profoundly compromised and, in some cases, completely destroyed, looking at the role design can play in reconstituting these links.

In exploring architecture and design objects and concepts at all scales and in all materials, Broken Nature celebrates design’s ability to offer powerful insight into the key issues of our age, moving beyond pious deference and inconclusive anxiety.

For nearly twenty years, Paola Lenti has interpreted and creatively expressed the importance of this spatial anchor in its range of rugs.
