The Adi Lombardy Delegation will be at the second Milan Design Week event in the spectacular Belvedere at the Palazzo Lombardia with the exhibition promoted by the Lombardy Region entitled: LightRevolution. Design lights up life. This exhibition presents lights and lighting products featured in the Compasso d'Oro and is curated by Massimo Farinatti, Ambrogio Rossari and Susanna Vallebona.
Against the magnificent skyline visible from the 39th floor of the Lombardy Region Building, visitors will be able to admire 32 products related to light and lighting selected from past winners of the prestigious ADI Compasso d'Oro Award. Genuine design icons, these lighting products dating from 1954 to the present and largely still in production have gone hand in hand with the evolution of our society, have followed scientific innovations and in turn have occasionally been the revolutionary standard bearers of emerging needs.
An undisputed and unbreakable link between light and society indicates the itinerary through the exhibition, a journey through time between those products that make up part of the important Collection safeguarded by the ADI Compasso d'Oro Foundation on the one hand and the iconographic images of our history on the other, expressed through the full range of the colours of the spectrum that make up the narration.
The exhibition has been designed to celebrate light, a fundamental, central and symbolic element of our existence, an essential accessory in everyday life and a design object that has constantly featured in over sixty years of the Compasso d’Oro.
The history of the Artemide project is told by the numerous lamps awarded with the Compasso d'Oro: Eclisse by Vico Magistretti, Tolomeo by De Lucchi, Pipe by Herzog&de Meuron, Minomushi by Issey Miyake, Discovery by Ernesto Gismondi.
