Impressing Exhibitions during the Salone del Mobile
It's not just because of its dominant architecture – the Palazzo dell’Arte was designed early in the Thirties by Giovanni Muzio– but also because of its historic past that the Triennale has, for many years, been an especially popular location for exclusive design and architectural exhibitions. In 1933 it became the location for the Triennale di Milano, the exhibition of decorative arts, and then in the Fifties the home of the Compasso d’Oro, Italy's most prestigious design award which was initiated by Gio Ponti.
Making of Konstantin Grcic's Myto Chair
This year the Triennale celebrated the 80-year existence of Cassina with an extensive "Made in Cassina" retrospective.
With skilfully and lovingly arranged installations Plank presented the history of the development of the Myto chair by Konstantin Grcic. Numerous prototypes, models and test structures gave visitors the feeling of being in a workshop, an impression which was supported by the typical noises of the factory floor. The entire "Making of" this chair with its perfect form has been captured in a successful book designed by Mike Mieré.
