Failures is a deep journey into the relationship between process and success in the design world.
The exhibition core is the main room, known as Galleria, where unique pieces that never made it out of the factory are displayed. On one hand, prototypes by eminent masters as Aldo Rossi, Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Marco Zanuso, Anna Castelli and Richard Sapper, owned by museum institutions of prestigious brands such as Alessi and Kartell. On the other, research products by renown contemporary designers as Riccardo Blumer and Francesco Faccin.
Cascina Cuccagna is a 17th century farmhouse immersed within the apartment buildings of the Porta Romana area: more than 4000 sq. m. of covered spaces and garden. After the recent conservative renovation, the Cascina is now a lively cultural spot and has become one of the people’s favourite location during Milano Design Week, known by exhibitors for its uniqueness in the urban structure and for the high number of visitors.
April 8 – 17 @ Cascina Cuccagna, Milano
