Altuglas International was the technical partner of the “Cucine e Ultracorpi” exhibition organized at the Triennale di Milano Design Museum in Milan from 9 April 2015 to 16 February 2016 as part of the 2015 Milan World Fair.
The exhibition was part of the Arts & Foods pavilion specially created for the 2015 World Expo. It presented the evolution of kitchen design and automation, from the simplest to the most sophisticated food processors and utensils, from 1950 to today.
Altuglas International provided 60 types of acrylic glass sheet from its standard and specialty ranges (Altuglas® Dual Satin, Altuglas® Fluo, Altuglas® Opal and Altuglas® Clear). These materials were selected by architect Italo Rota for use in staging several kitchen design sections: Cutting & Blending, Flavors and even Joe Colombo’s Minikitchen.
Altuglas® acrylic glass sheet also featured inside the large, amazing meteorite that contained the Minikitchen designed by Joe Colombo in 1963. Its playful style evoked the kitsch look of sci-fi films of that era.
