La Triennale’s permanent collection boasts more than 1,600 of the most iconic objects of Italian design in the entire world, including the famous Lettera 22 typewriter by Marcello Nizzoli for Olivetti (1950), the Moka coffee maker by Renato Bialetti (1933), the Superleggera chair by Gio Ponti (1957), the Arco lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1962), the Falkland lamp by Bruno Munari (1964), the Proposta per un’autoprogettazione series by Enzo Mari (1973), the Poltrona di Proust armchair by Alessandro Mendini (1978), the Ghost armchair by Cini Boeri (1987), I Feltri armchair by Gaetano Pesce (1987), the Revers chair by Andrea Branzi (1993), and the Her chair by Fabio Novembre (2008), to name a few. Through their innovative technology and forms, their aesthetic qualities and experimental nature, these objects collectively create a narrative about Italian design. The depth of the collection also shows the economic, social, political, and technological changes in Italy over the last two centuries. Based on the power of these objects, Grima is looking to create a flexible and dynamic exhibition format that will allow visitors to enjoy new forms of storytelling through these pieces, and interpret them in their own way.
