INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-Alessi has donated 29 objects from the company's catalog to the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) in Indiana. The acquisition, which includes designs from a number of different periods throughout Alessi's 90-year history, was made through a collaboration between Museo Alessi; Alberto Alessi, who is president of Alessi and head of marketing strategy, communication and design management; and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
The new contemporary design galleries will open on Nov. 22 after a three-year, multiphase renovation project. The reinstallation of the Museum's expanded collection of modern design will span nearly 10,000 square feet and will feature more than 400 objects. The IMA installation will focus on design after 1980. The galleries will be based on the two overarching concepts: design as industry and design as art.
