l’Opificio in L’Appartamento project by Artemest
This year too, during Milano Design Week 2023, l’Opificio creations were present in the city at the Fuorisalone: in a historic city building in the heart of the 5Vie district, L’Appartamento project curated by Artemest.
During the Design Week, a 1930s residence, located at 14 Via Cesare Correnti and composed of six rooms, was redesigned through the creative visions of Anne-Sophie Pailleret, Kingston Lafferty Design, MONIOMI Design, Nina Magon, Styled Habitat and T.ZED Architects, six international architecture and interior design studios.
The residence, already strongly characterized by original finishes from the period, such as antique wallpapers, frescoes, decorated wooden floors, and windows with colorful mosaics, was personalized through unique products and furnishing accessories from Italian companies, artists, and designers.
The textile surfaces of l’Opificio were selected for the decoration of "The Terrace" area curated by MONIOMI Design, a Miami-based design studio that puts new ways of living at the center of its design, enhancing the purest concept of beauty.
Inizio modulo For the terrace of L’Appartamento MONIOMI Design wanted to create an exterior space that felt like an interior space. The designers were careful in selecting homey, larger, and upholstered pieces that felt like they could be used for an interior space. MONIOMI Design brought a graphic aspect to the historic feel of the space, through the choice of color and by incorporating organic shapes such as the Nuovola 01 dining table designed by Mario Cucinella for Officine Tamborrino. The black and white materials intertwined with greens creating a cohesive flow while making an impactful graphic statement.
Fine modulo “It was important that the terrace felt as primary as the interior while supporting our aesthetic and the way we approach all our designs, which meant bringing in the color saturation and pattern that we identify with. Luckily, we were able to find that through Artemest’s list of beautiful artisans and craftsmen, who provide an amazing variety of these products.”—@MONIOMIdesign
MONIOMI Design chose some of l’Opificio's cushions, upholstered with Bruno Tarsia's RELIEF fabrics and PERLAIN Rayure in shades of green, combined with the brand's iconic velvets, for the setup.
A wonderful setup that estranged the guest from the historical context of the building and the city, immersing them in a dimension of unprecedented comfort and hospitality.
Thanks to Artemest and MONIOMI Design for this special journey!
