Contemporary architecture returns to play a leading role in the beautiful setting of the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza: the city of Palladio is in fact to open its doors to a season of exhibitions dedicated to David Chipperfield Architects.

Produced by the Councillorship for growth of the Municipality of Vicenza, in partnership with the Abacoarchitettura cultural association, the exhibition will be inaugurated on 11th May in Basilica Palladiana and will be open from 12th May until 2nd September 2018.

“It is a major event both in terms of its contents and also owing to the cultural impact on our local territory; it is in our brand DNA to pay attention to initiatives of such depth as this one: the exhibition of one of the most famous contemporary architects inside one of the symbols that have made our city famous across the globe” stated Floriana Nardi, CEO of Nardi S.p.A.

The new Komodo modular sofa (designed by Raffaello Galiotto for Nardi) in fiber-glass resin with padded cushions, which draws its inspiration from the branches of a tree, will be positioned inside the Basilica Palladiana, in the Zavatteri area, in a lounge area open to the public.
