Tod’s Studio conceived as a constantly evolving film set

In Montenapoleone, Milan, Tod’s Studio is a laboratory of ideas and contents. It includes nearly 1000 square meters of variously themed rooms, pop-up areas and animations. It is designed as a gallery by Curiosity that will evolve, with spaces that can be used in a huge range of ways and where physical space merges with the digital world.

Bombas Gens Art Center

Bombas Gens is an old industrial building with an unquestionable social-historical value and one of the rare remaining examples of the industrial architecture of the thirties. Its Art Deco façades and architecture make it a special, unique location for some new uses according to today needs. The new facilities have been created as an internationally renowned multi-use space where Fundació Per Amor a L’Art will carry out its three-branch activity (arts, society and research).

RC OFFICE | Porto | 2019

The area of intervention is made up of two adjacent units in a monotonous office Building in Porto. The area is defined by a 10,5 by 8,5 meters rectangle with all windows oriented west and the entrance on the opposite side. The program consisted of one reception area with access to a kitchenet and bathroom and to two offices connected to a meetings and exhibition area.  Absolute freedom regarding aesthetics, in an office that will host activities connected to sports, allowed for the experimentation of various finishes and lighting options.  A virtual mesh of 0,50 x0,50 meters was created to anchor the project, in which all spaces were designed in a structured and yet fluid way. All boundary walls are lined with cabinets that re... More

Valextra Flagship Store Milan

Contemporary minimalism meets classical form in this Flos Bespoke lamp, a commission to Michael Anastassiades for the luxury Italian leather-goods house Valextra. The lamp is repeated in seven identical examples within the rigorous John Pawson– designed interiors of Valextra’s Milan flagship on Via Manzoni. Hearkening to the ingenuity and elegance of ancient Greek architecture, Valextra merges modern design with advanced technical mastery.   Vertical LED rods join around a central base to form a freestanding lamp that recalls the geometric parity of platonic forms and the stately fluted columns of the Parthenon.   A symbol of timeless beauty, the lamp’s illuminated columns bring abstraction and clarity to an...

INFRA-STRUCTURE Episode 2

The reinterpretation of an icon: the unique design of Infra-Structure evolves thanks to a new, extremely simplified modular concept. The subtle but visually stunning elements can be combined to characterize any architectural space with a strong stage presence. Subtle, incredibly versatile tubular structure. Thanks to a special connection system, it is possible to combine vertical and horizontal elements to create three-dimensional combinations in infinite variations using linear and geometric modules. The mechanical connection between the individual modules that make up the structure is made through a screw system that guarantees a fast and safe installation. Each module is locked in place by integrating two small, almost invisible grub scr... More
