SpazioFMG presents an exhibition of Cini Boeri’s architecture and design projects open from December 11 2014 to February 6 2015. The famous Milanese architect and Gae Aulenti are among a handful of women architects to have succeeded in rising to prominence in Italy and abroad.
After starting out her career under the guidance of Giò Ponti and Marco Zanuso, in 1963 she founded CINI BOERI ARCHITETTI, a top level professional studio which still continues its intense design and research work today.

Cini Boeri: “Designing joy” is the first monographic exhibition of the work of this great Italian architect and designer, presented by curator Luca Molinari.

Designing with respect for the human dimension and human needs.
This is Cini Boeri’s vision. Some of her most important work focuses on the home, from the book “Dimensioni umane dell’abitazione” (“The human dimensions of the home”, Franco Angeli, Milan, 1980) to “Progetto Domestico” or “The Domestic Project”, first exhibited at the Triennale in 1986. The exhibition at Spazio FMG includes these works as well as a selection of housing projects: from the Casa nel Bosco, a “House in the Woods” built in 1969 near Lago Maggiore, to Casa La Sbandata, a house built in 2004 in La Maddalena, and the Apartment on three levels in central Milan (2006).

The exhibition is completed with a video interview and a number of the creations that have made Cini Boeri one of the most prominent names in Italian industrial design: from BOBORELAX, an armchair with three different diverse functions designed for Arflex in 1967, to GHOST, a glass chair made by Fiam in 1987.

“Cini Boeri’s homes express a cultivated, generous vision of domestic space, interpreted as the primary place for expression of the individual’s personality, interacting with the needs of the other inhabitants of the home. In parallel, her furnishings are designed not to be owned but to be used, on the basis of a ‘democratic’ approach to design with roots in the work of the great post-war masters,” comments exhibition curator Luca Molinari.

Cini Boeri: “Designing joy” goes back over the most important events in Cini Boeri’s career and takes an ‘indiscrete’ look at CINI BOERI ARCHITETTI’s work in progress and future projects, both visionary and highly concrete.
