Iconic – Gae Aulenti

© Ugo Mulas

Every month, Goodmoods investigates an iconic vintage piece, the history of its creation and the background to its manufacture. 


« At a time when it is being announced loud and clear that red is in fashion, I want to dress in green, » Gae Aulenti once said. From her birth in 1927 to her death in Milan in 2012, « La Gae » has always been a woman against the grain. At a time when few women were making a career in architecture and design in Italy, Gae Aulenti found her way into the collections of the greatest publishers: Potronova, Zanotta, Knoll, Artemide, Martinelli Luce…



From 1980 onwards, she transformed historical monuments into exceptional galleries, creating pieces with a very cinematic curved design that instantly became iconic… All this while following her own precepts and emancipating herself from the modern style that dominated the post-war period, which she judged to be increasingly rigid, repetitive and predictable. A look back at the work of a design genius.
