A reading corner by one of the two enclosed balconies overlooking the street is home to Tina rattan armchair by Benedetta Tagliabue. Fruit of a fantasy, Tina is more than a piece of furniture, almost a work of art with its attractive sculptural intricacy. Another rattan chair, Frames by Jaime Hayon, can be found in the studio conceived as a modern home office and a shelter from the madding crowd. In the spirits of the apartment, Frames establishes a dialogue between the old (the technique used in its manufacturing) and the new (its design and the rethink of the material).
Moving to the sophisticated living room, with a darker colour-palette, Cask sofa by Norm Architects seems to smile at the viewer with its half-moon frame made of rattan and frank welcome. Fused together with two different Grada tables cascading one over the other to give a sense of movement and perspective, the whole ensemble creates a most cinematic setting. The stage where real everyday life simply happens.
