Having been opened to the public since January of 2006, the Studio Museum Achille Castiglioni is a mandatory stop to every Italian design lover. This place is a reflection of the art of life of Achille Castiglioni.
Located in Piazza Castello, the Studio Museum Achille Castiglioni is considered an open-house shrine dedicated to the legacy of Achille Castiglioni. Castiglioni was a very influential Milanese industrial designer who worked on the very same spot the museum is located until his death in 2002.
Today those who visit this museum get to meet two of Castiglioni’s heirs: Irma and Giovanna Castiglioni, wife and daughter of the great designer. Visitors are taken by both women to the rooms where, during his career, Achille created and developed his design work.
Inside the museum, you can find Achille’s studio area where he sketched and developed projects, a conference room, archives and display areas. However every year the Studio Museum Achille Castiglioni exhibits different furnishing objects that came from the mind of the Italian designer.
Every year the Achille Castiglioni Foundation exhibits different furnishing objects in the headquarters of piazza Castello: this year the temporary exhibition is entitled “La dimensione domestica” (“The domestic dimension”) and reproduces the homey atmosphere created by Castiglioni in 1957 for the design exhibition at Villa Olmo in Como. It is amazing to see how current this reproduction is, as the furnishings are still desirable, the chair, the table, and how much we would like to have them in our living room.
