After four long years of work and lots of anticipation, Italy’s first museum dedicated entirely to design will be unveiled in Milan in December.
The Triennale Design Museum abuts its namesake, the famed contemporary arts center La Triennale. To travel between the two is a simple crossing over a suspended bamboo bridge, designed by well-known Italian furniture maker Michele De Lucchi. But make no mistake, while the two buildings are close physically, the new institution has a mission distinct from its parent organization.
