Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum

Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum

We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about the Giro Giro Tondo “design for children” exhibition, at the Triennale museum, which was part of the Milan Design Week during Salone del Mobile 2017, via the local newspaper Het Parool. We didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight. This week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.Giro Giro Tondo Exhibition at the Triennale Museum“The opening is an Ouverture, devoted to play design with a powerful figurative component and a pop spirit.”  For us this image is love at first site! (image from the local newspaper.) This we must see in real life! Must!

“A new history of Italian design, devoted to the world of children and to the design and architecture that has been created for them. It includes the games and images that have amused and informed them, the spaces within which they took their first steps, and the objects they used to discover the world.”

Fortunately for us this exhibition runs through February 2018. (Concept and Direction:
Silvana Annicchiarico. Exhibition Design and Art Direction: Stefano Giovannoni with Tian Jin. Graphic Design: Giorgio Camuffo with CamuffoLab.

Nice, random, read on the Milan Designweek:

Pioneers of Play Art

We never heard of the term Play Art, but last week we found a site (the only one actually) which categorized art from the past 20th and 21st century with this term. According to Ernst Lurker of it all started with Duchamp‘s Bicycle Wheel in 1903. The latest work on his site is by Lygia Clark made in 2013 (see image above) After seeing the art categorized by Ernst Lurker under “Play Art” we thought an exhibition on “Play Art” is a nice way for people who don’t like or “understand” art ’cause it should trigger you inner, curious, child. Mr Lurker of already has a concept for a museum…. Continue reading
