The museum was originally founded in Ravenna in 1988 by Raffaello Biagetti and co-curated by Giovanni Klaus Koenig, Filippo Alison and Giuseppe Chigiotti with the clear goal of telling the story of the birth and evolution of one of the most important cultural and social phenomena of the last century: Design.
MUSEO DEL DESIGN 1880-1980 aims to represent the most crucial moments of the evolution of Italian and International industrial product design, highlighting nuances and contrasts through the different experiences that have generated contemporary design. The collection, was put together and curated with the clear aim of creating a sound didactic tool to teach the history and development of the sector and to guide the visitor on an imaginary voyage through the evolution of creativity applied to objects. The efforts of the founder and co-curators were strengthened by the help and vision of great names such as Dino Gavina, Ettore Sottsass, Ignazio Gardella and many other authors, who contributed to the realization of a “theatrical museum” where every stage is a scene, a chapter in a book, able to generate a consistent and unbiased vision, chronological and accurate in its references to the most important protagonists of world design.
Now, thanks to the vision of Musei Italiani, this collection has been brought to Milan for the duration of EXPO 2015 so that the greater public, both Italian and International can appreciate and learn from this unique museum experience.

Long story short is an exhibition of almost only armchairs, chairs, some lights and some table, all divided into any room. Me and my friends we came out totally disappointed.show original

There are only design chairs and armchairs, historical pieces, but that does not justify the price of admission. Not worth the ticket price. Trust me and visit other museums in Milan.show original
I am passionate about design and this place is like the design Hall of Fame! I found the exhibition extremely moving - you can really feel the historical importance of the pieces and imagine the lives lived around them. Near the metro in the canal district so good for an after-museum drink or nibble. Definitely worth a visit.
