Feal industrialised house at the 11th Milan Triennale

1957 Milan


Giovanni Varlonga

This pavilion in the park of the Triennale was not a small house; it was an example of integral use of new industrial products for the house, from construction to furnishings: from the Feal system of light prefabricated structure, to the roofing, the window elements, the external facings -all made out of aluminium- again by Feal, the walls made out of colored concrete-framed glass blocks by Fidenza, ceramic diamond-shaped tiles by Joo, rubber floorings by Pirelli, and the two-tone folding partitions (as Ponti's new furniture for Cassina and his new lamps for Arredoluce, still prototypes, were in two colours).
