All pieces are designed by the great Italian and international architects as Colombo, Magistretti, Castiglioni, Zanuso, Mangiarotti, Bellini, Asti, Mari, Paulin, Eames, Panton, Juhl and many others.
Three of these objects will be reinterpretes by three important design entrepreneurs: Carola Bestetti, Lorenzo and Maria Porro and Antonio Verderi.

Orange Peel 3.1 - the title comes from a rare album by Cure - is staged and designed by Francesco Rota and represents a unique opportunity to see a collection of rare objects in the same shade of color, which are capable of imparting a boost of energy to everyday life.
A15 was born on 11 September 2001 - the day that everyone remembers exactly where they were - and it is brokerage in the field of design and decorative arts (glass, ceramics, plastics, curios) of the twentieth century.
Particular attention is given to the great masters - the Italians Castiglioni brothers, Joe Colombo, Vico Magistretti, Osvaldo Borsani, Gio Ponti, Gino Sarfatti and among foreign Verner Panton, Charles & Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen - and to the production of some companies like Arte Luce, Fontana Arte, Herman Miller, Kartell, Oluce, Olivetti, Stilnovo, Tecno. More than a gallery, it is a space of 40 square meters of exhibition, hospitable and comfortable, where visitors can relax, but is constantly evolving and changing as the exhibits or theme events organized.
