The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike. Bringing together avant-garde speculations with contemporary objects and new commissions, Home Futures explores today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. The exhibition asks: are we living in the way that pioneering architects and designers once predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change?
This section questions the functionalist approach to the home by exploring an alternative vision that sees it as a place of organic forms that evoke the natural landscape. Here is where with its Radical Design spirit and its nonconformist experimentation linked to aesthetic, technological and material research, you will find Gufram's seats and interior design icons that have entered collective imagination, such as Bocca, Pratone, Cactus and La Cova.
