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.” triennale.org

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.

Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House

We, at Mimi Berlin, came to know about Matti Suuronen’s Futuro House via the Salone del Mobile 2017. On Instagram; we didn’t attend the Design Week this year because we missed our flight.  So this week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on.

Image of yellow Futuro house via artsy.net if you are interested in trends spotting go to this site for some trend watching as well.

This flying saucer type of building is something we really wanted to see in real life. A yellow version stood in front of the Louis Vuitton Fondation at the Palazzo Bocconiin in Milan, where the newest designs for the Objets Nomades Collection were on display.

The Futuro House was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. It was commissioned as a portable “holiday house” or ski chalet. Because it would be used in a mountainside setting, the structure needed to be easy to transport to the site, low maintenance and shed snow easily. The final design of the Futuro House met all those criteria. It’s just over 26 feet in diameter and came completely equipped with ctom furnishings that fit the interesting shape of this house.

Hiring the Futuro. Why think outside the box, when you can think inside a circle? Various forward looking companies and institutions have already taken the opportunity to use the  Futuro House as an inspirational and unique meeting or event space. “more info at futurohouse.co.uk
