design et al are delighted to announce that Spagnulo&Partners have been shortlisted for Living Space Europe Award in The International Design And Architecture Awards 2016
The clients’ refined style and passion for contemporary art required an interior design concept to interpret a completely new language outside the traditional ways of expression and complement the architecture of this exceptional private villa in Milan. Designers Igor Rebosio and Federico Spagnulo have reinterpreted artistic movements, from modernism to cubism, to create a design concept inspired by the exquisite curving form of the central spiral staircase.
Living spaces are organised across three floors. The large living room and dining area on the ground floor is the heart of the house. In this unique living space the design concept is presented with stunning precision. Every detail is expertly curated into unconventional and highly stylised interiors. Materials, forms and details present a unique form of eclecticism. A fluid duality of cubes and curves, straight and sinuous lines, is presented in a combination of effects and finishes that works together harmoniously. Within the architectural structure of the space, rounded pillars are presented alongside sharp-cornered cuboid ceiling details.
Curved windows overlook the garden, flooding the space in natural light. A wall of rectangle and square shaped feature mirrors, illuminated from behind, are an artistic lighting feature. A Vistosi chandelier created from angular rectangle glass elements is suspended above the bespoke oval dining table and the rigid lines of the Minotti sofa is flanked by the curving glass handrail of the staircase. A bespoke cabinet behind the sofa is sinuous in form and is not just visually striking but also a clever storage solution.
