Altuglas International participates in the 2015 Universal Expo, through the 8th edition of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan
“Cucine e Ultracorpi” is linked to the "Arts & Foods" pavilion. This exposition presents the evolution of design and home automation for kitchens, including utensils and robots from the most basic to the most sophisticated, from 1950 to today.
Altuglas International offered 60 acrylic glass sheets from a variety of standard and specialty lines (Altuglas® Dual Satin, Altuglas® Fluo, Altuglas® Opal, Altuglas® Clear). These materials were selected by the architect Italo Rota for the scenery of several sections dedicated to kitchen design: "Cut and Mix," "Aroma," or "Minikitchen" by Joe Colombo.
PMMA Altuglas® sheet was used to create customized furniture to present, in particular, a collection of micro-wave ovens. Bookcases were also used to showcase more than 100 coffee machines while designer cases were used to protect alarms, timers, blades, and other ingenious creations.
We also find Altuglas® acrylic glass sheet inside an astonishingly large meteorite with the "Minikitchen" designed by Joe Colombo in 1963. A fun atmosphere with a cheesy style from old science-fiction films.
Altuglas® is known worldwide as the acrylic glass preferred by designers and architects for several decades, as demonstrated by this time travel exposition.
