La Ménagère


Florence, ITALY - 2021

La Ménagère is travel, storytelling, storytelling, variegated and changing worlds, rich or rough, delicate or scratchy, fresh and natural. La Ménagère is smells, tastes, light, shadows, materials, colors and languages.
The intervention is guided by the desire to abandon the formulas that made up the previous space. Abandonment of any formula that has become standard in the meantime. Like the skinned places, and also a little bit the beautiful romantic mixes of industrial, design and vintage. From these contexts the almost obsessive research for materials and furnishings.

An engaging, exhausting and uninterrupted exploration of materials. The velvets, the wallpaper, but also concrete, raw iron, wood, crystal, carpets, geometric decorations, furnishings from all periods (30/40/50/60/70) and other specially designed different worlds. Useless and harmfully recognizable personal and self-referential language is abandoned in favor of a very incessantly permeable whole. An unfolding, scenario after scenario, of an alienating wonder.
