The solo exhibition "When Structures Take Shape," dedicated to the patriarch of Italian design, Angelo Mangiarotti, has opened at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, Italy.
The exhibition features an extensive collection of art objects, various design works, documents, and other materials. It includes two large sculptures created by Angelo Mangiarotti in collaboration with the ALPI company. These colorful figures are over three meters high and at the center of the exposition. The totems, built from various size parallelepipeds, have irregularly shaped edges, showing an endless variety of wood texture patterns. ALPI produced these monolithic giants in the mid-1980s following Mangiarotti's design.
The designer has always been interested in tectonic volumes and forms' archetypes, which he miraculously turns into utilitarian forms of furniture and art objects.
The exhibition is open until April 23, 2023.
