WOOD from Nature to Things brings to Bergamo the 100x100 Achille exhibition, a project conceived by the Achille Castiglioni Foundation to celebrate Achille’s birthday anniversary on February 16th. An exhibition born from an invitation to more than 100 of the world's leading designers to make a gift to Achilles: an anonymous object.

The entire 100x100 Achille collection (on exhibition until the end of July at Achille Castiglioni Foundation in Milan) and some other objects designed by Castiglioni, combined with the object from which the inspiration was taken, becomes the conceptual process of "WOOD from nature to things – The extraordinary everyday life of wood "but it is further enriched. All 41 companies of WOOD from Nature to Things, will each exhibit their own project, object or mechanism - obviously made of wood - which is part of their own productive "daily life", but at the same time a brilliant for solution, for production process or for use. The pleasure of discovery in objects we touch and use every day.

Even the 41 companies, all specialized in wood processing, then bring their own anonymous object, such as those that Castiglioni has sought and collected throughout his life, choosing them especially for how they work rather than for their authors name.

In addition to the exhibition, a scientific section, of in-depth study, to understand the several peculiarities, created in cooperation with ERSAF (Regional Agency for Agriculture and Forestry Services).
WOOD from nature to things - The extraordinary everyday life of wood " is the conclusion of a story started in May with 100 Achille Castiglioni playing with design and wood, always based on the concept by Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari, who wished to tackle one of the main feature of Achille Castiglioni’s personality: the game. An activity that included a site-specific for installation in Bergamo Bassa (low town) and the production of a puzzle that shows the stylized silhouette of Achille Castiglioni and 10 iconic pieces designed by the Master, to emphasize the close link between the materials and the architect for a new idea and to give a fresh perception of objects and wood material.

The puzzle together with the "Wooden Ovoteche’ (wooden Eggs boxes)" - which this year will be enriched in the third series of American woods - will be on sale at the exhibition "WOOD from Nature to Things - The extraordinary everyday life of wood" at the Palazzo della Ragione in Piazza Vecchia (Bergamo - Upper Town), during the event ‘I Maestri del Paesaggio / The Masters of the Landscape’ from 6th up to 23rs September.from 6 to 23 September.
