Interior Design

If the imitation was the synonym of flattery, then the number of reproductions created for the staple remover Zenith 580 make of this object the most admired design object for offices of the last sixty years!

Interior Design > Enjoy your Sittings

If they get around the dining table, then they must coordinate with it and, at the same time, be functional and offer maximum comfort. What do I mean? – SITTINGS, of course.

Thought, which type to choose? Decide upon soft padded armchairs of larger sizes to maximize the comfort, by so scarifying the number of total sittings? Or maybe go for slimmer versions, this way keeping the padding and perhaps gaining some free space? And if you choose to give priority to the number of sittings, then choose simple chairs with no armrests that take up less space?

Interior Design > Design Objects - Lounge Chair (1958)

The first time, the Lounge Chair was created custom made. Only some years later, Eames has adapted its design to be able to produce it at a larger scale at an industrial level. The prototype was designed by Don Albison at the Eames Office and inserted into the production line at Herman Miller in 1956. Since 1958 though, this sitting is sold under the Italian famous design brand VITRA.

With the creation of the chandelier 2097 for Arteluce, Gino Sarfatti gave a #newlook to the traditional shape of classical light, transforming it into a modern innovation. 

Each one of us spends at least eight hours a day working, and many on a sitting job. How do you get to choose which type of office armchair is better?

Armchair SANLUCA was presented for the first time in 1960 at the exposition “XII Triennale di Milano” and became one of the biggest icons in the Italian design history. The creation of Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, with unreleased aerodynamic shapes, almost futuristic, arouse huge sensation at its launch.

Do you know how to choose and position lighting above the dining table correctly?

Interior Design > Mirror, Mirror on the wall...

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the Fairest of Them All?

Waiting for magic Christmas, I thought to make a selection of literally magic mirrors by their size, elaborated work, and design, to choose for decoration of our houses.

Interior Design > The Seventees in interior design

The early Seventies in fashion carried a lot of the Hippie vibe: people would wear bell-bottom pants, frayed jeans, midi skirts, maxi dresses, Tie-dye, and ponchos. Others would prefer a dressy casual look: tight t-shirts with flared pants, sweaters, cardigans, and boots. Pastels were popular colors, especially baby blue, yellow, mauve, and peach. By the mid-1970s, the Hippie look fell out of fashion and was replaced by tailored business styles: tailored blazer, midi skirt, a fitted blouse, and classic high heels. While the late Seventies was all about disco: chunky heels became a must, along with jersey wrap dresses, tube tops, sequined shirts, spandex shorts, and high slit skirts with boots. Three-piece suits with wide lapels and flared pants were popular in powder blue, beige, and white.

This futuristic armchair Filinea is the creation of Antonino Sciortino in 2019 for the Italian producer company La Cividina.
