Luca Meda/ La felicità del progetto
The Triennale di Milano, in collaboration with IUAV University of Venice-Project Archives, Molteni&C, Dada and UniFor, paid tribute to Luca Meda, who played a leading role in an extraordinary and important period of Italian architecture and design, one that continues to influence the new generations still today.
Through a rich and exuberant collection of drawings, study sketches , projects, models, catalogs, photographs, and objects, the exhibition narrates and describes the versatile nature of a man who profoundly marked the history of design and architecture between the 1960s and 90s.
Artist, but at the same time artisan and manufacturer, Luca Meda represents a rare example of perfect symbiosis between creativity and business, art and industry. The exhibition was curated by Nicola Braghieri, Rosa Chiesa, Serena Maffioletti and Sofia Meda, with exhibit design by Chiara Meda and Nicola Gallizia, and the valuable contribution of the Swiss graphic artist Felix Humm, with whom Luca Meda worked together for many years to create the company images of Molteni&C and Dada. For the Molteni Group the exhibition represented an occasion to pay tribute to the designer and friend who contributed so much and for so long in defining the company identity. It has been rich and joyous journey.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris
On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
