The exhibition will feature works from the Meta Memphis collections shown alongside Italian art, blurring the boundaries between art and design.1989 saw the launch of the Meta Memphis collection, an innovative experiment that involved no longer designers, but internationally renowned artists engaged in the design of objects and furniture.

Inspired by the Greek word metamorphosis (transformation), the collection rethinks the ways and archetypes of living sedimented in the collective memory through conceptual reappraisals and unusual formal, material, and functional associations.

Alighiero Boetti handwrites the hours on the Orogio wall clock in italics, making it illegible. Michelangelo Pistoletto hones down a piece of furniture to its outline, to the point of making it unusable. Franz West creates poetic and unstable pieces using recycled metal materials: the iron rod chair or the stiffened chain lamp. Together they blur the lines between art and design.
