Just returned from trip to Europe and made sure I stopped in Milan to see an amazing exhibition of Ettore Sottsass called “There is a Planet” at the Triennale Museum which is open thru March 11th. The title of the exhibition is that of a project that Sottsass started in the 1990’s , but never completed. The project was to show photos which he had taken over many years in 5 categories; architecture, houses, doors, people and more in general dwellings which involve the presence of humans on the planet. This forms the structure of this exhibition.
This all encompassing exhibit displayed over 6000 square feet of exhibition space includes many rare early pieces never exhibited to the public in Sottsass’ lifetime. For those of you lucky enough to have seen the exhibit-Congratulations. Those of you who will be in Milan before March 11th, this is a must highlight for any design aficionado.
For anyone not in either in the above categories, I took many photos which I am sharing with you.
