curated by di Silvana Annichiarico, Triennale di Milano, Milan

Shopping-t, 2005, Yun Lahic, 2015 (3-pieces artwork)

The ninth edition of the Triennale Design Museum curated by Silvana Annicchiarico, with installation design by Margherita Palli, examines Italian design in the light of one its most delicate, most problematic aspects – but also one of the most exciting and appealing, which is that of gender.
he idea that gender is no longer just a biological and natural fact, but rather a cultural issue opens up interesting perspectives for what design after design might be. But to address the question of gender in design in an objective and balanced manner, we first need to examine the great removal of the female gender perpetrated during the twentieth century. “W. Women in Italian Design” traces a new history of Italian design in the feminine, reconstructing the figures, theories, and approaches to design that were sown in the twentieth century and that have taken hold, transformed and evolved in the twenty-first century.
