Food Meets Design in Milan

While you are buzzing in and out the pavilions of EXPO in Milan, stunned by their modern, eye-catching and innovative design, you may also be glad to know that at La Triennale,  the museum of Art and Design of Milan,  the current exhibition is dedicated to the relationship between Arts and Food.

The multi-level sensory path, created by Germano Celant, explores the way in which artists and designers have represented the relationship between human beings and food. The exhibition consists of paintings, objects, video installations, sculptures, photographs and furnishings that are related to food or dining and that have stressed the changes of this relationship over the centuries since 1851, the year of the first Expo in London. An overview of the bond between arts and the rituals of food.

Taking advantage of the exhibition may represent the opportunity to sit down at the tables of its new restaurant “La terrazza”. Located on the terrace, the modern and bright architecture, designed by OBR, is manly made up of glass windows and walls to offer the diners an astonishing view of Parco Sempione, the green area next to the Castello Sforzesco, the old castle of the city. On the other hand, for a quick brunch, there is the DesignCafè marked by the chairs and tables donated by some famous Italian furniture firms, such as Eros by Kartell.
