La Triennale’s work with Ettore Sottsass started in 1957 when the maestro from Italy contributed the 11th edition of the International Exhibition. And now, they revealed Casa Lana, a private residency for the collector family in Milan.
Designed in the mid-60s style, the apartment is combined with urban notes. You can notice the designer’s signature style. The Radical touch is used in a dining room, a living room, a hallway, an office, and a corridor.
Casa Lana welcomes guests at the museum’s first floor where you can discover an exact replica of the original house featuring all the proportions and materials. A structure made of wood offers a lounge zone with sofas.
The exhibition will last two years and will consist of a series dedicated to Sottsass’s heritage for modern Italian design. Struttura e colore studies two essential elements- structure and color through various paintings, drawings, photographs, and other objects. Boeri thinks that it demonstrates the relationship between humans' needs, their habits, and the space occupied.
