“Gae Aulenti. The objects and spaces” – Triennale Design Museum remembers Gae Aulenti through a selection of his most iconic design objects made from 1962 to 2008, curated by Vanni Pasca with a project for the preparation of the Gae Aulenti Architects. The story of Gae Aulenti’s design, able to look at rationalism and good design through the lens of Neoliberty and Art Deco and to reinvent them with elegance (think of the Pipistrello or Sgarsul) but also able to recover with irony the practice of assemblage and the lesson of the avant-garde (as in the table with wheels). Ernest Nathan Rogers’s student, Gae Aulenti deeply absorbed the teaching according to which furnishings and urban planning are the extreme polarities of the activity of a modern architect.
