Pedrali for ADI Design Museum

Dome chairs by Odo Fioravanti furnish the gallery of the brand-new museum


Pedrali contributes to the staging of ADI Design Museum in Milan by providing Dome chairs, designed by Odo Fioravanti, for events, initiatives and presentations that will take place in its spaces.

ADI Design Museum, whose inauguration is set for the first bimester of 2021, will permanently host the Compasso d’Oro Collection: products and projects that, over the years since 1954, have been awarded with the prestigious prize.

Among these there is also Frida, the Pedrali chair designed by Odo Fioravanti known for winning the award in 2011.

The design of the setting of the new museum, curated by Ico Migliore and Mara Servetto (Migliore + Servetto Architects) and Italo Lupi, starts from the idea of a “story-telling museum”, a box open to contamination, talking not only about design in a narrow sense but about whatever gravitates around it.

Located in Piazza Compasso d’oro, entrance in via Ceresio 7, in a former industrial area boasting a considerable level of architectural and urban impact, the museum was born with the idea of renovating without upsetting, thanks to the renovation plan by Giancarlo Perotta and Massimo Bodini.

Dome chair, with its silhouette, brings back to mind the glorious tradition of the bistrot chairs with generous shapes recalling the domes of the monuments adorning a lot of cities all around the world. Made of injection-moulded polypropylene, Dome is resistant, lightweight, stackable and easy to clean and maintain.
