Frog @ La tradizione del nuovo
Triennale Milano's Museum of Italian Design, directed by Marco Sammicheli, presents itself in a new guise proposing an exhibition project that, starting from Triennale's collection and from the archives of past International Exhibitions, unveils how Italian design has always had a courageous and dedicated approach to exploration, tackling the not yet known through research. The exhibition, entitled “La tradizione del nuovo”, brings together works, installations, documents, creative processes and experiments that have contributed to the development of society touching on sociological, commercial, ecological, technological and cultural aspects between 1964 and 1996. The exhibition offers visitors some of the most significant works belonging to Italian design, including the Frog armchair, designed in 1995 for Living Divani by Piero Lissoni, Art Director of the brand. Iconic product, this model is considered the forerunner of low and wide seating and of a new, more relaxed way of living. Wide, agile, a tribute to the most fairytale-like of animals ready to jump beside a pool of water, Frog is shown for the occasion with a stainless steel structure and black hide weaving: one of the countless versions that have renewed its image over time while always remaining true to itself.
