Step in the Italian Rooms: “Stanze” at La Triennale di Milano


Step in the Italian Rooms: “Stanze” at La Triennale di Milano

Have you ever thought about a perfect place to live in? Contemporary Italian architects constantly search for the answer trying to imagine a domestic environment  that would fully meet modern lifestyles and one’s individual expectation. Sometimes, these ideas look rather like an abstract world of dazzling perspectives. Sometimes, they are visionary geometries and sometimes, pragmatic living solutions considering present-day difficulties of cohabitation typical of dense urban contexts. Or, in other cases again, spaces based on acoustic, tactile and other non-visional perceptions and ever-changing conditions. In few words, each of these tiny rooms is a surprising universe reflecting the past decades of an intense research on interior architecture that goes far beyond conventional practices.

In the occasion of Milan Design Week 2016, our favorite Triennale di Milan has decided to put the most intriguing of such design ideas together. The result is the unmissable collective exhibition “Stanze: novel living concepts” showcasing “Rooms” of such iconic Italian minds as Alessandro Mendini, Fabio Novembre, Elisabetta Terragni and many others.

The exhibition curated by Beppe Finessi opened this April came to its end only few days ago. If you missed it, no worries. Check our gallery below and step in the most unbelievable and creative of the visionary Italian Rooms.
