The Exciting Exhibits of the Triennale Design Event in Milan

Curated by Germano Celant Exhibition Design: Studio Italo Rota Lately, I have been devoting quite a lot of attention to the Milan World’s Fair currently taking place – and for good reason, as it showcases some of the latest and greatest developments in design from across the world. There is plenty of inspiration to draw upon from the multitude of interesting and innovative pavilions.
 
But as most in the design world know, Milan is one of the world’s premier centers of art, fashion, culture, and of course design. Hence its selection to host the 2015 world’s fair, and also why the Triennale di Milano is one of the most breathtaking and popular reflections of global design trends in the world.
 
This bi-annual event takes place in the beautiful park of Monza’s Villa Reale, and is geared towards unifying all the forms of art and creative expression as they pertain to social evolution and economic development. So like the contemporaneous Milan World’s Fair, it focuses on the intersection of design with human progress; design that is intended to solve practical problems without sacrificing functionality and aesthetic.
 
Since this year’s edition has the fortuitous timing of coinciding with the Expo Milano, the Triennale will draw inspiration from the latter with its special exhibit entitled “Kitchens and Invaders”. Curated by Germano Celant, and developed in collaboration with Silvana Annicchiarico, this interesting exhibit shows the gradual but inevitable mutation of kitchen appliances and utensils into machines and robots – a commentary on the fast pace of mechanization and automation that impacts our everyday lives.
 
Examples include displaying the transformation of refrigerators to microwave ovens, coffee makers to toasters, waste disposal units to kettles, and so on. The various sculptures and displays span a variety of themes and visual forms, from the quirky to the creepy. It shows how designs we take for granted can change and develop in interesting ways in the face of rapid changes. Not only does this give a glimpse of what the future of design may hold, but it starts a very interesting conversation – like so many good designs do. Check it out if you are in Milan any time soon.
