THE EXHIBITION ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE TRUMEAU AT FORNASETTI STORE
16 April 2018
On the occasion of
the 2018 Milan Design Week, Fornasetti
presents an exhibition celebrating the history of the “trumeau”, providing the
opportunity to see various models together for the first time at Fornasetti Store
on Corso Venezia in Milan.
The exhibition retraces the origins and evolution of one of the most iconic and representative items of the Milanese Atelier’s output, chronicling a story that spans seventy years and presenting a wide variety of forms and decorations, culminating in its latest variant: the trumeau “Architettura Celeste” (“Celestial Architecture”).
From the outset, this piece of furniture has maintained its timeless charm and its wide variety of uses, which have allowed it to adapt to lifestyle changes and new ways of organising the home. Today the trumeau is considered an iconic object straddling art and design.
The exhibition will be open until the 30th of June.
