The Italian Design Museum, directed by Joseph Grima presents in a permanent exhibition a selection of the most iconic and representative pieces in the history of Italian design, part of the 1,600 objects in the Triennale Collection.
The Museum is located on the ground floor of the Palazzo dell'Arte, at the Milano Triennale and occupies the Curva area. The exhibition aims to give maximum emphasis to the works, organized in chronological order, and provides insights on the history and context in which each object was designed, through the exhibition of mostly unpublished materials from the Triennale Archives: photographs, advertising campaigns, original packaging.
In some instances the objects are set in dialogue with the corresponding wooden models made by Giovanni Sacchi - granted as a deposit by the Region of Lombardy to Triennale - to show the project’s evolution, from the study and development phase to realization and production.
