.:. design  / a designer who makes you play 
October 6, 2023 through March 24, 2024
Tue-Sun, 11am-8pm (tickets sold till an hour before closing time)

If you climb the wide Triennale staircase (pictured) these months, you face an installation where components for metal furniture are engraved. But you might have missed the panels aside the staircase, with discrete sources of light placed among them. All this is intended to remind you that, when visiting the Museo del Design Italiano on the ground level, you come across a brilliant temporary exhibition about a designer whose ingenuity deserves better attention.
.:. What Alberto Meda (Lenno, Lombardy, 1945) designed and designs results in pieces of forniture, mainly office furniture, where God is in the details. Suspensions, joints, technological solutions, the action of light...
.:. Drawing the general public's attention to God's details is not easy. Details appear as details, after all. So Meda, the exhibition's curator and its stage designer have organized the display as a series of interactive physical games on specific components. Play on suspensions as if they were a marimba, orient a light through levers, make a table top to raise or lower by acting on an electric scissors lift mechanism. Eureka!
