Milan,Penthouse steps from Duomo

Located in the historical center of Milan, in a modern building from the 70s, this apartment enjoys a view over the roofs thanks to the small terraces that surround the penthouse. The goal of the project was to keep the original plan and revisit the layout of the rooms and the overall decoration. A real challenge considering that the apartment was in a tremendous state, due to years of neglect. The premise had to accomodate a couple with a child and their furnishing, including a fully equipped kitchen, coming from the previous apartment. The moodboard developed specifically for the project features classic elements combined with modern ones. The colour palette mixes neutral tones, like taupe for the walls of the...

Azucena,Brand Repositioning

Named after the gypsy in the Italian opera Il Trovatore, Azucena was founded in 1947 by Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella and Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua.

ConceptTrevira CS Bauhaus Lounge

P aying tribute to this year’s 100 anniversary of Bauhaus, SoFarSoNear has developed a concept for multinational company Trevira, focusing on Trevira CS flameretardant textiles. Back in 1919, Walter Gropius founded a new art school in Weimar, Germany. What he created was revolutionary at the time – he combined art and craftsmanship, a concept which was until then unheard of. Creativity and manufacturing was united, art and industrial design was brought together in the mid-1920s and eventually this all led to the development of modern art, influencing architects, designers and artist in Europe and in the United States of America alike. The Trevira CS qualities on display in the Trevira CS Bauhaus Lounge demonstrate nicely the variety of...

Mood,Protective

In a world marked by demographic and technological transformations, this trend channels a desire for a noiseless, empty neutral space.  There‘s an increasing need for individuality, safety and a sense of well-being. The house becomes a nest, that isolates and protect us. The colours are soft and subtle with nuances that reminds us of haze and dusk.  Maroon and a saturated pink give warmth to a rather cool palette. Material and finishes are translucid, opaque, diaphanous, providing a calm and relaxed environment.

Solitude and silence are the ultimate luxury.
