The installation retraces 60 years of the company by means of the laminates that have defined some of the most extraordinary periods in the history of Italian design. The exhibit includes both emblematic pieces of furniture, like the Carlton bookcase by Ettore Sottsass, and creations made specifically for the exhibit that raise the profile the continuously evolving Abet Laminati collection.
The exhibition space is designed as a town square surrounded by a series of buildings, each with its own precise identity that represents a decade of the Company’s history.
An Imaginary City has been realized also thanks to the craftsmanship and skills of De Rosso, the company Abet Laminati has been collaborating with for over 20 years.
