The Maxxi museum, perhaps the most important italian contemporay art museum, will decorate its exhibition spaces with Sagabellox, a stool developed and hand-made by Umberto Dattola and designed by Alessandro Bazoli.

The stools has been directly selected by the new general manager Hou Hanru and will be positioned at gallery 1-2-3-4-5, Carlo Scarpa’s hall, Claudia Gian Ferrari hall and Maxxi Art and architecture.

Sgabellox is a stool composed of three pieces, which may be easily assembled in a few seconds. It is provided with a string that may be used as a handle or a shoulder strap. Check it out here.

The inauguration will be held during the opening of the exhibition “Open Museum Open City” on October the 23th at 7,30 pm.

For what concern the exhibition visit the web site of Maxxi:

“An exhibition hosted in the entire museum, an extraordinary opportunity to examine some crucial topics of our times by means of “sound”.

The project offers a challenging opportunity to rethink the relationship between artistic production, architectural intervention and participation of the public. It reflects the complex context of the city of Rome, as a contemporary “foro” for urban transformation and social-cultural experiments.

Sound has been playing a key but special role in the exploration of reality, such a context in order to create a laboratory of an open museum, a condensed sample of an open city”.
