Fabbrica del Vapore, via G.C. Procaccini 4, Milano
As a child Leonardo da Vinci was used to sitting down on a holm oak and wonder what it was like to fly. His passion led him to invent flying machines to be able to climb up to the sky, to parachute, descending back to the earth without getting hurt. And Leonardo was used to studying the flight of birds and insects, bats and swallows. Hello Leo! Good morning child who wanted to learn to fly!
On the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s birth, unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK dedicates a special project celebrating the greatest of genius’. Artist, painter, mathematician, scientist, man of multiform talent. We like to think of Leonardo as the first designer in history, able to combine creativity and functionality, beauty and practical resolution of problems, the desire to overcome limits and the ability to remain grounded. Even after flying!
Leonardo built terrible war machines, yet his models today look like toys. His studies and drawings regarding wings and animals today have the poetry of an illustration for children.
To celebrate Leonardo the designer, and to remember the childish components of his vision, we have collected works of young designers, innovative international brands and historical companies of Italian tradition. We have asked them to interpret, and update Leonardo's lessons and inspiration in their own way.
Hello Leo! Helps us teach children how to fly again!
From April 9th to 14th, unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK, collaborating for the second time with the Municipality of Milan, interprets a 600 sqm open space at the Fabbrica del Vapore and wants to celebrate design for children, products and companies.
Inside the exhibition we want to pay homage to Leonardo with historical and contemporary pieces by great designers that still help us to fly today: the Bruno Munari Abitacolo (produced by Rexite) which is already 40 years old with a structure assembled with only 8 screws, the H-Horse rocking horse designed by Nendo for Kartell, the legendary Eames elephant designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945 for Vitra, the Haptic Lab site-specific Flying Martha, from New York, for the first time in Italy, the birds nest cupboard by the Italian designer Alicucio, the Mona Lisa by the French Poppik to interact with, the imaginary machines by Foooty, and the graphic illustrations Duvet Days by Jenna Wiebe from Costa Rica
The partecipating brands are: Alicucio, Anne- Claire Petit, Banwood, Bonheur Intérieur Brut, Carapau Portuguese Products, CasieLiving, Cink, CLiCQUES, Collégien, DollsVilla by Liliane, Dotandcross, Dsgn Kids, Duvet Days, Eguchi Toys, Eperfa, Franck & Fischer, PlanToys, Play&go, Poppik, and Quut for Ama Gioconaturalmente, Foooty, Haptic Lab, Kartell, Koko Cardboards, Lama Palama, Linha Bloom, LOWII, Maké Maké, Mini Home, MOLUK, Nidi, Nini, nati con le ali, Nofred, Nuna, ooh Noo, Paola Sala, Pinch Toys, Puella, Reisenthel, Rexite, Swandoo distributed by Eleven, Tellkiddo, TIPTOE, Tresxics, Virvoltan, Vitra distribuita in Italia da Unifor e Molteni&C, Wooden Story, and Zanotta.
