MDT-tex. Palazzo Isimbardi Milan, Italy

A typical Milanese palazzo rarely reveals its full splendour to passers-by on the street

Yet inside, it is often resplendent with an impressive inner courtyard open to the sky. Premium Tulip Umbrellas (Type E) from MDT-tex® can spectacularly transform these courtyards into usable spaces, regardless of the weather. The arcades of the original Renaissance architecture are beautifully in tune with the high-tech form of the umbrellas and together they create the perfect synthesis.

For the last two years, this synergy between modernity and tradition could be savoured as part of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. A major exhibition by various furniture manufacturers and design partners was held in Palazzo Isimbardi, headquarters of the provincial government of Lombardy in the heart of Milan’s historic centre.

Comprising four 8x8m Tulip Umbrellas (Type E), the canopy installation housing the exhibition was precisely custom-made to fit the dimensions of the inner courtyard. The temporary canopy enabled the exhibition to take place and was very well received by both visitors and guests.
