Triennale Design Museum

Posted by Alex

I recently visited the Triennale Design Museum in Milan and saw some nifty little things. The exhibit was dedicated mostly to Italian industrial design from the 50’s/60’s. Some of my favorites are pictured above; a Ferrari P6, Olivetti Lettera 22, Brionvega TV and radio, and a Zanussi Refrigerator which looks like a time travel device. Unfortunately, I missed Design Week by a few days, but the museum was a decent substitute. It wasn’t very big at all—took only about 15 minutes to walk through—but it’s always nice to see a dedicated design exhibit.

would love to sneak in there, hide somewhere and wait for the museum to close. Then I could set-up a little space to sleep and eventually live in the Triennale forever!

Do you think that fridge gets up to 88mph to meet required time travel speeds? Maybe its just a recondition sleeper pod turned fridge.

I think so, we got it up to about 80mph, which was pretty good. I think you could hit 88 with just one person in it pretty easily. I’ll try again next time
