We were going to Venice, because we wanted to visit Venice Biennale exhibition. At the end, the best experience from the trip was a visit of the restored and newly opened Olivetti showroom, which was designed in 1957 - 1958 by amazing Carlo Scarpa (1906 - 1978).
Showroom is now the museum and all original fixtures as well as legendary products by Olivetti you find on their places. The interior is wonderful exercise in Scarpa`s typical detailed modernism, which is, in the shop, completed to its perfection. Work with wood, marble, Murano glass and steel create together one big interior sculpture. More in our photo essay.
Next stories, as well as video about Scarpa soon.
