REALIZZAZIONIR. DIDR. DIDATTICA SU MISURALecture hall seating for Politecnico in Milan, Campus Leonardo - Aresline

Politecnico di Milano, Campus Leonardo

Aresline was commissioned to design and furnish 5 of the 6 large classrooms of the Trifoglio building, 3 of which are medium-sized lecture halls, and the other 2 didactic/multipurpose classrooms of the new Architecture B building. The Trifoglio classroom that was not remodelled, number 6, was deliberately left as is in memory of Gio Ponti, the original architect.

The lecture halls were furnished with products from our Omnia Evolution line. We installed black writing tablets, beech seats and backrests with black metal floor anchoring on the first floor, and black writing tablets, white laminate seats and backrests with black floor anchoring on the top floor.

On the top floor there are two facing classrooms and an atrium which, thanks to a system of movable, opening walls, will allow, if necessary, the combination of the three rooms into one in order to create a large Aula Magna, capable of accommodating more than 800 people and defined by Renzo Piano as the most beautiful Aula Magna in the world”.  Ultimately, we were able to create an innovative, high-performance solution for instruction and conferences going forward, all the while respecting the history, memory and cultural heritage of Gio Ponti's original architecture at Politecnico di Milano.

Within this space, there are also 300 foldable and multi-purpose Papillon armchairs in white eco-leather.

Where required, a cable duct for easily managing electrical and data wiring was installed.

The multipurpose classrooms of the Architecture B building, on the other hand, have been furnished with the new Poli folding tables designed by Arch. Ottavio Di Blasi, complete with a new magnetic ganging system. The tables can form infinite compositions and can be equipped with multiple accessories. To add to all of this, teachers could not be forgotten and thus received: Aira white shell chairs with an upholstered cushion, a 5-star base and armrests.
