Precious wooden beamed ceilings, original inlaid parquet floorings, historical and design furniture and a technology as much sophisticated as much invisible, blend in harmony in this late 17th Century apartment located in the historical center of Milan.
In the living, the Tuscan 18th Century table shares the space with an international 20th Century design icon, such as the Arco lamp by Achille Castiglioni, while the recent Swarm Lamp, by the young Swedish designer Jangir Maddadi, coexists with 30’s colonial and French furniture, collected by the landlord during the many years spent working abroad.
The kitchen is characterized by concrete rough surfaces with corten steel inserts and technological pullout equipment. Designed in order to hide its function, it becomes an extension of the living.
As well as the bedroom, where an ironic composition of empty ancient frames and antique mirrors is the main character of this room and masks the big cabinet, suspended to avoid interrupting the extraordinary parquet pattern.
The design lamps are integrated by technical spots, carefully positioned in order to emphasize the volumes, the floorings and the ceiling frescoes.
The sound system, installed and independent in all the rooms, can be easily controlled using a smartphone, as well as the mechanism that raises the big picture of a famous model above the sofa, disclosing when necessary a television, or the last generation projector ,which animates the big central frame of the bedroom, transforming it into a cinematographic screen.

Pregiati soffitti con travi a vista, parquet originali e intarsiati, mobili d’epoca e pezzi di design e una tecnologia tanto all’avanguardia quanto invisibile, si fondono armoniosamente in questo appartamento tardo '600 nel centro storico di Milano,
Nel living, il tavolo fratino del ‘700 toscano si accompagna a un’icona del modernariato internazionale come la lampada Arco di Achille Castiglioni, mentre la recente Swarm Lamp, del giovane designer svedese Jangir Maddadi, convive con gli arredi coloniali e francesi anni ’30, collezionati dal padrone di casa nei tanti anni di lavoro passati all’estero.
La cucina si qualifica per le ruvide superfici in cemento con inserti in acciaio corten e per gli elementi tecnologici rigorosamente a scomparsa. Disegnata per nascondere la propria funzione, diventa un prolungamento del living.
Così come la camera da letto, dove un’ironica quadreria di vuote cornici d’epoca e di specchi anticati domina l’ambiente e cela il grande armadio, volutamente sospeso da terra per non interrompere lo straordinario disegno del parquet.
L’illuminazione puntuale delle lampade di design è integrata da luci tecniche, studiate per valorizzare i volumi, i pavimenti e gli affreschi del soffitto.
L’impianto stereo è presente e indipendente in tutti gli ambienti e si controlla facilmente da uno smartphone, così come il meccanismo che solleva la grande foto di una celebre modella sopra il divano, svelando all’occorrenza l’esistenza di un televisore, o come il proiettore di ultima generazione, che anima la grande cornice centrale della camera da letto trasformandola in uno schermo cinematografico.
