Interni “Human Spaces” Exhibition @ Salone Milan 2019

Interni “Human Spaces” Exhibition @ Salone Milan 2019

Interni asked the architects and designers participating in this year’s edition of the event to translate the concept of ‘ Human Space’ into experimental installations, starting with the furnishings that surround us and extending to urban mobility.

From the natural environment to macro-system of production, such as the virtuous – and by now necessary – circular economy.

In collaboration with partner companies and institutions, over thirty installations have been created for the show, envisioning a future in which nature and the planet are protected, resources are saved and artificial intelligence is applied for the common good, promoting personal well being.

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.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Achille Castiglioni, the Achille Castiglioni Foundation entrusted the curation of an exhibition to Chiara Alessi and Domitilla Dardi, who created the project concept — to ask 100 Italian and international designers to write and send to Achille a congratulatory Birthday Card and at the same time, to give to him their favorite anonymous object.

The ” 100 x 100 Achille” exhibition is as playful and design-saturated as he would have loved.
