Fuorisalone 2017

Fuorisalone 2017 - BreraDesignDistrict – BreraDesignApartment :
l’Opificio dresses The Visit


Fuorisalone is the whole mix of events distributed in different areas of Milan that take place during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
Fuorisalone is not a fair. It all started at the beginning of the ‘80 as a spontaneous event sought after by some companies of the furniture sector and of the industrial design. Nowadays, it involves many different sectors such as: automotive, technology, telecommunications, arts, fashion and food.
Since many years now, Fuorisalone is an unmissable appointment of SalonedelMobile.Milano fair, especially for those who love design. It is a melting pot of ideas and creativity, Fuorisalone has overcome the boundries of a secluded space to bring the last trends of the Italian and international creativity along the streets and the neighbourhoods of Milan.This year, for the 56th edition of SalonedelMobile.Milano, the Fuorisalone proposes at the BreraDesignDistrict, The Visit. An apartment in the heart of the Brera neighbourhood, that for an entire month it will be the location to live in and host in the Italian way. l’Opificio precious cotton velvet dresses the apartment with colours that declines from fawn to nude rose, embellished by distinguished sartorial details.
The idea behind the project of Arianna Lelli Mani e Chiara Di Pinto, creative directors of Studiopepe, was to represent the rite of visiting, as a moment of confrontation, but above all of welcoming. A closed space, which opens itself to the visitor showing the intimacy of who lives in, developing and dressing the rooms. An inner place, thus historically layered, an apartment of late ‘800 which still has large windows, stuccos and beautiful wooden floors, enriched and decorated by wall drawing and velvet drapery which act as a common thread among the different rooms.
Of importance is also where the apartment is placed: the Brera neighbourhood, an area traditionally connected with arts that nowadays represents one of the most prolific design districts.
To the Studiopepe project, outstanding Italian company have adhered, selected for their experience and reliability, such as Agape. Astep, Atelier de Troupe, AYTM, Bitossi Home, Bonotto, Bulthaup, CC Tapis, Cedit, Fenix, Florim, Green Wise, Lambert&Fils Studio, Leftover, Molteni&C, Pietro Russo, Sfera, Shuj, Sikkens, Spotti Edizioni, Valverde, Vitra.
Opened from 31st March to 10th May, The Visit is in Via Palermo nr.1 – BreraDesignApartment. You can visit on reservation.

l’Opificio Collections: Domestic scenes by Bruno Tarsia

At SalonedelMobile.Milano, l’Opificio textile collections interpreted by the contemporary and eclectic spirit of the architect and interior stylist Bruno Tarsia present l’Opificio creations in a new light.
Precious fabric and velvet collections are portrayed as alive elements that create a dialogue among space, human being and the everyday life.
The Lehnstuhl, lounge-chair of Gebrüder Thonet Vienna, designed by Nigel Coates, an iconic element that combines great comfort with aesthetic beauty and Sara, a glam chair of Velvetlab, designed by Gianluca Bocchetta, both wearing l’Opificio fabrics, are leading pieces of the set design.

l’Opificio collections dress, interpret, characterize, enrich your home making it your personal ideal refuge. Beautiful textiles to be touched, filled and lived in, they are synonymous of high-end quality, of a refined classical style, but contemporary; a skilfully mix of historical citation with a fine and explosive perception of the colour.
l’Opificio fabrics and velvets welcome usmaking us feeling comfortable and dreaming.
The explosive richness of the velvets wins sight and touch; the material fabrics inspire a sense of quietness and intimacy; the subtile charm of some collection make us thinking of faraway and seducing culture, all this is l’Opificio world.
This is what it is perceived from the refined tailor-made soft furnishing, such as cushions and bedspreads. Unique pieces of timeless style, designed and handmade – thanks to the excellent bespoke service – for unique interiors.
