Thirty years later, Bruno Munari’s Gilet is back in a limited edition of 200, handmade pieces made from upcycled fabrics - embodying the great artist and designer’s creative spirit.


It all started with a simple request: "We need a way of displaying the books."
Corraini and Bruno Munari presented some works from the new "Block Notes" collection back in '92. It was a loose collection of ideas and projects in a pocket-sized book format, with holes in the cover to spark readers' interest.
Munari figured out a unique way to show off the books, a gilet with many pockets of different sizes, each with assorted textures and shades.



“We asked Munari to devise a display stand for all the books, and he came up with a gilet, which was even better! It shows well how important it was for him to learn and understand through all five senses, from sight to touch.
He designed the gilet using all sorts of fabrics to create varied textures and an interesting tactile sensation.”

Maurizio Corraini



Three decades later, we're honouring the Munari Gilet with a new version featuring pockets of all sizes. The blue from the original remains while grey switches to pink. It's crafted with upcycled fabrics and yarns - from vintage jeans to TENCEL™ Luxe and REFIBRA™.
This project results from a collaboration between Corraini and Blue of a Kind - a fashion design studio that sources quality used fabrics to craft their own apparel.


Inside the box, along with the gilet, you'll find a booklet explaining its history and some of Munari’s books to slip in your pockets.
