Gae Aulenti was one of the few female Italian architects and interior designers active in the postwar period. Best known for her redesign of the interior of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and for the design of Cadorna station in Milan, she has also designed furniture and lamps.
With the exhibition Gli Oggetti e gli Spazi (Objects and Spaces), the Triennale di Milano pays tribute to this icon of Italian design, who passed away in October 2012. The exhibition features a selection of Aulenti’s most iconic design objects made from 1962 to 2008.
In 2012 the Triennale di Milano has awarded Gae Aulenti the Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement in recognition of her position as one of the masters of Italian design.
