In 1965, Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari released the Tetracono with an event and exhibition at the Danese Milano showroom, inviting spectators to “. . . meet the Tetracono” as if it was a person. Instead Tetracono is a multiple product, an austere 15-cm black steel cube housing four aluminum cones, each painted half-red and half-green, designed to spin at four distinct speeds on an 18-minute cycle. Its function is to “show forms while they are in the process of becoming.” Developed from a 6-month fellowship at the American Academy in Rome, this setup features a rotating installation of 4 posters upstairs and a refreshed inventory of specific design titles in the bookshop downstairs, together with a short background video. Limited edition silkscreen posters announce the future exhibition project by Dexter Sinister at the beginning of 2018 in the COLLI independent space.
