On April 8, 2011 the exhibition “design for purchases” opens at the Design Museum in Calenzano.
It is a review of shopping bags or bags for purchases produced all over the world since 1975 and which are given as a gift by the shops along with the commissions. They are also an important testimony of the international graphic work. Some of these shopping bags have been designed
by famous designers or architects for various companies. Most belong to the world of clothing or a production of various common objects.
The exhibition is organized by the Anna Querci Foundation for Design, the Degree in Industrial Design at the Faculty of Architecture of Florence and the Municipality of Calenzano.
Will remain open until April 22 2011.
