Through a selection of 120 works, Series Off Series illustrates the contemporary scene of Italian design, which starts from experimental research to get to mass markets, using handicraft materials as well as sophisticated technology. Sella, designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1957) – celebrating its 60th anniversary just in 2017 – and Sacco, designed by Gatti, Paolini e Teodoro (1968) – considered one the most clever and symbolic pieces of the Italian design – represent perfectly the concept of exhibition.
