NEW YORK A three-dimensional illuminated piece which transmits the explosive force of New York at night. Combining the rigid verticality of skyscrapers and the chaotic tangle of underground life and lighting this piece shares its energy with the environment in which it is located giving the viewer the feeling of entering a mysterious and fascinating world.

PRIVATE APARTMENT PORTA VENEZIA AREA, MILAN. Located in a 30’s building nearby Porta Venezia, the neoclassical atmospheres are recalled by the lozenge texture of the ceilings and the authentic linen colored doors. The restyling project carefully balanced the original 30’s style with the contrast created by modern art.

MOTION The wave motion wants to communicate to the fluidity of movement, emphasized by the veins in plaster raised. It ‘s an easy to read work that goes straight to the sensitivity of the observer. Inspired by the idea of ​​movement and the pony lining of Le Corbusier famous rocking chairs.

TOP FLOOR FLAT IN A RATIONALIST BUILDING FROM THE FIFTIES, MILAN. In the linearity of this rationalist apartment we wanted to add some emphasis: a new scenography created by the bookcase and the heavy grey columns. Those elements and the colour that we choose are in illusory contrast with the logical order of the spaces but still in harmony.

Magic This is a work that hides a secret. It may be a single one or it can be seen as a double. The brilliance of the color of gold combines the chaos of the design, and give the viewer a very nice feeling of confusion. The uncertainty unfolds when you go to the second part of the framework, which reassure offering a recognizable image. It’s the MAGIC of what we can not see, because it is hidden by the complication of everyday life. Cobalt blue and gold dominate this piece which makes it suitable for neutral environments. LOFT IN A CONVERTED LATE 19TH CENTURY FACTORY, MILAN.
