Design Week: Gabriella Crespi

The exhibition was created with the aim of paying tribute and enhancing the artistic work of Gabriella Crespi, proposing a selection of original works that represent her different styles and various moments from her career, in a setting that encourages alternative perspectives.
The exhibition includes objects and furnishings from the collection of the gallerist Enrica De Micheli, the Gabriella Crespi Archive, and other private collections.


Gabriella Crespi, born in 1922, studied architecture at the Politecnico in Milan, where her work is permeated by her perspective on Le Corbusier’s and Frank Lloyd Wright’s design experience. Since the 1950s, she has dedicated herself to the creation and worldwide circulation of furniture and other objects that balance design and sculptural abstraction. Thanks to her always original conception and ideas, to the articulated forms that meet the needs of contemporary design, and to the amazing ability to transform objects by adding openings, closings, and changes in function, Gabriella Crespi has conquered the international scene in a short time. Her creative journey still incisively inspires the expressive creativity of the current generation of artists.
