Aldo Rossi, 1994

Located on the eastern bank of the Meuse, across from the old town centre of Maastricht in the Netherlands, the Bonnefanten Museum is a creation that exemplifies and perfectly sums up Aldo Rossi’s designs for public spaces. In addition to the building, Rossi also designed the museum furniture, produced by Molteni&C and UniFor, including the Museum chairs.
