Igor Rebosio and Federico Spagnulo, reimagined a traditional apartment in central Milan for a creative couple who are avid art collectors. The goal was to emphasise the property’s architectural features, while creating contemporary spaces to showcase the impeccable style of the clients and present their splendid art and design collection.
Paintings and sculptures required careful consideration to ensure they were not a secondary element, but instead, were central to the concept. Bespoke display units have been strategically designed and built to display artworks and books, particularly in the living room and the stunning entrance hall, which features two handcrafted units especially made for key sculptural pieces. Suspended ceiling panels with thoughtful LED lighting design and decadent chandeliers add a glamorous finish in each room.
Every space has been impeccably curated, from the reception area with its separate piano room, games room, dining room and kitchen to the master suite with adjoining bathroom. The designers have presented a 20th Century aesthetic reimagined with contemporary elements and traditional features, alongside classic design pieces and furniture.
Repeating visual motifs include the stucco pattern cement flooring in the entrance hal and games room and the brass trim, which is echoed across the door panels and is a striking detail on the fireplace in the games room.
The capacious master suite has a black suspended ceiling panel, mirrored by the oval bedside tables with a black lacquer finish. A palette of taupe and truffle repeat across the matching upholstered headboard and bedspread in Rubelli fabric and curtains in plain silk by Dedar. Scatter cushions in burgundy red provide a striking accent. The bathroom is sinuously linked to the bedroom by a smoked glass screen framed in brass, with a floor-level Murano Due bath, exuding the decadent ambience of a 5 Star hotel.
