Una mostra di PlusDesign Gallery in collaborazione con Juventus a cura di Andrea Caputo e Anniina Koivu

For Milan Design Week 2018, PlusDesign Gallery in collaboration with Juventus presents U-JOINTS, a collective exhibition that will take place from 17 to 22 April at Via Archimede 26 in Milan.   U-JOINTS is a group exhibition that explores the theme of connections in design by looking at the multifaceted world of joints. The exhibition features all kinds of joints, from the most common to the most innovative, as well as those that have had the greatest influence on contemporary design.   The joint comes in every possible size and material: nanoscale or the size of a room; plastic, steel, carbon fibre, wood or wool. A joint might be ingeniously engineered or the result of garage tinkering. Truly multivalent, the joint is a fundamental element in almost any designed object, be it a bridge, a piece of furniture or an everyday product. It is the kind of detail that holds the world together.   More than 50 contemporary designers and industry professionals display new products, prototypes and conceptual pieces – many especially conceived for the show. In addition, the exhibition features examples of some of the world’s most ingeniously engineered joints; private collections of knots and fasteners; and masterpieces of traditional Japanese and Chinese wooden joinery.   U-JOINTS features the work of 50 invited contemporary designers, design studios and research institutes: Alvar Aalto, Massimiliano Adami, Tomás Alonso, Andrea Anner & Thibault Brevet/AATB, Aldo Bakker, Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, Camille Blin, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Thilo Alex Brunner & Jörg Mettler, Michel Charlot, Pierre Charpin, Carlo Clopath & Christophe Guberan & Julie Richoz, Stefan Diez, Francesco Faccin, Didier Fiúza Faustino, Martino Gamper, Alexandra Gerber, Thélonious Goupil, Konstantin Grcic, Anthony Guex, Antrei Hartikainen/Y-Team, Sam Hecht & Kim Colin/Industrial Facility, Chris Kabel, Rio Kobayashi, Kohei Kojima, Ville Kokkonen, Max Lamb, Kwangho Lee, Vico Magistretti, Cecilie Manz, Enzo Mari, Michael Marriott, Ingo Maurer, Alberto Meda, Christien Meindertsma, Jasper Morrison, Jonathan Muecke, Jonathan Nesci, Jonathan Olivares, Pentatonic, Bertjan Pot, Leon Ransmeier, Adrien Rovero, Gino Sarfatti, Peter Saville, Self-Assembly Lab MIT, Studio Brynjar & Veronika, Studio Wieki Somers, Keiji Takeuchi and Dirk Vander Kooij.  
UNDICI by Juventus UNDICI is the new branded experience format by Juventus exclusively premiered for the occasion. UNDICI is a place filled with symbolic elements, conceived as a true communal space, capable of offering a true Italian experience based on four pillars: PLAY, LEARN, EAT and SHOP.
A large rectangular table recalling the shape of a football field occupies the centre of the space.
The table is the key element of the space, the place that symbolises the sharing of ideas, experiences and thoughts. A place of unity, where all is joint.
Another highly symbolic object, representing conviviality and the UNDICI’s ultimate purpose of coming together is the football table.
