Untold at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi

Untold, an exhibition curated by Rossana Orlandi at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi during Milan Design Week 2014. Museo Bagatti Valsecchi is a historic house museum which showcases the collection of the brothers Bagatti Valsecchi who decorated their house (at the end of the 19th century) mainly in a Neo-Renaissance style, including their collection of paintings and decorative arts of the 15th and 16th centuries. Rossana Orlandi gathered modern day furniture/art/design and placed them in this antique environment. We never visited this museum, the location sure was a nice surprise. But it would have been a great visit without the added modern design as well. We, at Mimi Berlin, thought the exhibited designs, (which were all very pretty) weren’t always a bonus to the house. As always, that’s only in our opinion and of course we made some pictures so you can judge for yourself……

Shivering Bowls by Nendo

The Shivering Bowls by Nendo are a set of bowls for the KAMA. Sex & Design exhibition at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan (5th Dec 2012 –10th March 2013). The curators asked eight designers to create an object, in conjunction with an exhibition that explored ideas of eros in design from ancient times to the present, from a cultural anthropology and mythical perspective. “We located the intersection of eros and design in the spiritual pleasure provided by an object’s touch, and decided to make an extremely thin bowl out of silicon for our contribution. The bowl resembles a ceramic one, but with a tension to this perception, generated by the extreme thinness that would be impossible to achieve with clay. The bowl changes shape as easily as liquid when it is touched, and continues to quiver momentarily in response to the outside force. We wanted to express eros through a design that invokes desire – a design that viewers simply can’t bear not to touch.” (movie by Takahisa Araki/photographs by Hiroshi Iwasaki.via Nendo)
