What they designed, how they lived and what inspired the young minds of these thinkers, experimenters and bold visionaries destined to become legends. The initial thoughts, first productions and new intuitions of the 20th-century masters show how, in the past, young talents managed to fuel an inner passion through relations, contacts, intellectual exchanges, study trips and early publications. Surprising, unexpected and sometimes perplexing, these figures successfully changed points of view and found new keys to the contemporary world.
Sharing a prodigious creative and design talent, those featured in the exhibition were discovered and launched by Domus, some in the very years when Mendini and Bellini were at the helm – two outstanding innovators who created and nurtured several generations of great designers.
Never previously seen objects, sounds, sketches and models, prototypes, recently recorded memories and extraordinary archive films, thoughts, ambitions and hopes – all celebrating the fertility of youth with a desire to inspire future generations of designers to carve out their own paths with optimism and curiosity, embracing life and a love for this exceptional profession.
