MICHAEL KORS VENICE AIRPORT
Interior design of the new Michael Kors store in Venice Airport
Les Niveaux is a small, newly built hamlet with an exquisitely Walser flavor in Courmayeur, Aosta Valley. We had the pleasure of intervening in the interior design of a chalet owned by a young couple. The house is on three levels, the semi-basement floor houses a large cinema room with bar corner, here a gym area with sauna has also been created; a staircase leads to the immediately upper floor where, in large living room are articulated the kitchen with dining area and reading area with stone fireplace; continuing along the staircase is the sleeping area, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is warm and welcoming and speaks a taste that dialogues between contemporary and mountainous. Wood is the protagonist, but without overdoing it, covering some walls while leaving freshness to other corners that are instead treated in lime. The furniture was designed and studied specifically to make the most of the space, connote the rooms and integrate into the space by dialoguing with the parquet floor, creating an enveloping material and color continuity. Light plays an important role in the home, deliberately discreet, apt to create corners, areas illuminated and emphasized by adjustable spotlights and integrated LEDs, which light up and give life to the rooms. The tones are natural, warm, with contrasting black accents that make the chalet contemporary. The bathrooms are clad in Luserna stone casing, masterfully treated and carved by local craftsmen. A home that beautifully reflects the combination of intent and taste of the clients and Nomade!

Casa Agrate is a family home, not renovated or modified for decades, which the clients, a young couple with their two children, have decided to transform and make more
modern and flexible. The clients asked us for a comfortable home, with modern finishes and materials and simple geometries; to these general guidelines we have tried to add more pop and daring accents in the decor choices, above all with the use of custom-made wallpaper and furnishings, and paying particular attention o the choice of lamps and furnishing accessories. The house opens onto a wall completely covered in Fornasetti’s “Key secret” wallpaper in shades of blue, which hides the 2 pocket doors of the guest bathroom and utility room, and which continues into the living area; thus a large box is created, in which the corner has been completed with custom-made furniture in painted metal and covered panels, designed by us and Ccustom made. The small guest bath deserves a separate mention: completely hidden by the folding door flush with the wall, it is a small box entirely in shades of blue that opens onto the entrance and is completed by the large custom-made mirror that expands the space. To the right of the entrance is the living area, which houses the seating area and the dining area, aligned with the window; the long wall opposite the entrance has been fully equipped to our design and divided into 3 areas: a TV area in the seating area, the fireplace in the center and a reading area on the left, next to the fireplace corner and the window overlooking the garden. In the master bedroom we worked on a palette of pinks and grays, juxtaposing grayscale Cole & Son ‘Palm Jungle’ wallpaper with a blush ceiling, and leaving all furnishings and accents in white tones.

The apartment is located in a central area of Milan made extremely dynamic by the coexistence of historic buildings, parks and shops and more recent offices, clubs and restaurants. The intervention was radical both in terms of internal redistribution of the premises and in terms of style. The project, commissioned by a young family of professionals, combines the historicity and liveliness of the neighborhood by making color the leitmotif that accompanies the various environments by combining traditional and elegant materials. The apartment opens onto the living area designed for multifunctional use, relaxation, dining room, work area, and connected to the kitchen by a white iron window that offers different configurations by connecting or separating the two spaces. The floor in the living room and sleeping area is in solid wood laid in a Hungarian herringbone pattern, while the floor in the kitchen is made up of maxi slabs in Primavera di Mutina stoneware, a reinterpretation of the traditional terrace. The colors of the floor are echoed in the pink of the kitchen furniture and in the deep blue of the equipped wall that leads to the sleeping area. The sleeping area is organized with the children’s room, with rather neutral furnishings so as to be able to follow their growth, and the children’s bathroom, with a hexagonal stoneware floor where we find underlined shades of pink, green and blue from the mint green lacquered wooden cabinet. The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, on the other hand, are characterized by more traditional materials such as the Vienna straw of the wardrobe and the zelliges, Moroccan handcrafted tiles, of the bathroom cladding. The “Bird & Pomegrade” wallpaper by William Morris forms the backdrop to the double bed, while “The forbidden fruit” by Fornasetti makes the last room, the study, elegant and cheerful thanks to accents in shades of yellow, green and blue. A laundry room completes the sleeping area. The lamps, the result of careful research carried out with the enthusiastic collaboration of customers, underline the character of each room. In the living room a large suspension lamp in shades of bronze frames the sofa area, the Monkey Lamp by Seletti was chosen for the children’s room, while in the study and in the bedroom two important chandeliers interact with the wallpapers thanks to their organic shapes. An apartment where you breathe the energy of the family who live there and on which we worked with great enthusiasm thanks also to the confident participation of the client.

A conservation project in one of the most beautiful and lively areas of the city, inside a building designed by the architect Caccia Dominioni. The project marks our third collaboration with the client, Jacopo Canclini of JMC spa, real estate developer and interior designer enthusiast, who has chosen to entrust us with the renovation of his future home. Not being able to intervene on the layout, nor on the floors, the greatest effort was to manage the complete renovation of the systems and the renovation of the bathrooms, impacting as little as possible on the existing one, maintaining and restoring the wooden floors and the original doors. The apartment opens onto a large entrance around which the master suite, the living area and the service area are distributed. From the entrance you then enter the long corridor onto which two other bedrooms and the children’s bathroom overlook. The eclectic style of the project comes from the synergy with the customer, with whom we collaborated closely in the different phases of the construction site, defining all the choices together, from plant solutions to finishes, from custom-made furnishings to textiles.
There is a legend that advises against designing a friend’s house. Well, we’ve never been happier to debunk this myth. The house in question is owned by an Italian-Moroccan couple of great friends of Selina, the owners of Casa Amar, which deals with the import of well-made Moroccan carpets, with a particular eye to the sustainability of their production. The couple, fond of their Milanese home, decided it was time for a restyling. The layout has remained almost unchanged, but what we have particularly focused on are the lights, the finishing materials and the furnishings. Starting with the living area, enriched by a mural with deliberately bright colors and a Moroccan appeal, which seems to want to draw a sun that illuminates the room and the design of a furniture that creates a sort of booth-bookcase with respect to the entrance. The living area has been enriched with gold-colored wall lamps and the chandelier that dominates the dining table. The corridor leading to the sleeping area was deliberately poped-up with the use of wallpaper that covers part of the walls and ceiling, creating a decidedly enveloping effect with a taste of magic. The corridor opensto the master bedroom, with soft colors and delicate North African accents and the children’s room, enriched by a beautiful watercolor effect wallpaper and a large furniture in Vienna straw and wood that contains both clothes and toys. some children. A colorful and enveloping house, just like the family that lives in it!
People grow up, families are expanding and for us architects it is really a pleasure to be able to follow their evolution. Casa Lazit is the new home of a beautiful family for which we had already followed the renovation of the previous apartment (viale Abruzzi apartment). The family has expanded and needs have changed and with them the tastes and the desire to create a house with a new and fresh character. The apartment, very large of 200 square meters, was designed in an eclectic style, a basically neutral palette on the walls, which however was characterized by colorful accents given by the furnishings and accessories. The eclectic style is perfect for homes that want to grow and change without distorting themselves, gradually composing accessories and accents that renew their varied and sometimes eccentric character. The heart of the house is undoubtedly the living area, a large space overlooking a beautiful garden, consisting of the sofa area and the dining table, connected by a large white iron window overlooking the kitchen. The kitchen, with a central island, is colored in powder blue and warm white, with the central island to which an oak table is attached. The character of this environment is further emphasized by the Mipa colored terrazzo material used as a backsplash for the worktop. It was decided to leave a concrete column in the living area exposed, on this wall were placed a sideboard with a Scandinavian taste and a composition of paintings with a multicolored palette that connote the space with bright accents. The sleeping area is organized with a master bedroom containing the bedroom, a large walk-in closet and the “lei” bathroom. The tones used in the room are more traditional, with a silky wallpaper. The bathroom is played in shades of antique pink and forest green, with gold accents. In the sleeping area there is also the child’s bedroom, characterized by tropical-themed wallpaper and the “he” bathroom, in grit-effect stoneware with black and wood accents. A blue telescope-effect corridor leads to the service area of the house, with a guest bathroom, deliberately treated in an elegant and simple way, the laundry area and his study. An apartment that we really liked to design and follow, for the open plan and the great possibilities that ensued and for the great participation of the customers. A curiosity, she is Lucia, the influencer lucia_lazit!
One of those projects in which we were able to express our love for details, materials and refined solutions. Located in one of the most beautiful residential areas of Milan, the apartment has been completely renovated, both in terms of internal distribution and taste. We opted for an intervention that would enhance and dialogue with the period details of the building from the early twentieth century, through a game of references and citations that pay homage to historical figures of Italian and Milanese design. The result is an elegant and delicate project, with extremely accurate details. The apartment opens onto a small entrance illuminated by the custom-designed iron and glass door, which leads to the study and which dialogues with the coat closet covered in Nuvolette wallpaper by Fornasetti. The floor is a Venetian-style seminato by Fantini Mosaici, with a shaded design that
changes from an intense red perimeter to a warm white in the center, in line with the large glass chandelier by Vistosi. The entrance leads to the corridor that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms, and then opens onto the large living area. In the great room the stuccos and frames meet historical protagonists of design, from the mirror by Gio Ponti hanging over the late 19th century marble fireplace, to the lamps by Sarfatti aligned with the large molded windows; all the result of careful research and selection carried out in constant dialogue with the client. The kitchen is the last room and concludes the project, the pair of iron and glass doors and the seminato floor by Fantini Mosaici return, but this time with Candoglia marble, the same as in the Milan Cathedral; the wall units by Valcucine in clear etched glass match the top and
shelves in gold Calacatta marble. The bathrooms deserve a separate chapter: the master one, connected directly to the bedroom, has floors and walls in Salvatori’s Carrara marble, in Raw and Honed finishes; the second bathroom, the children’s one, is covered in Zellige tiles by MosaicFactory, combined with the
blue grit floor. Everything in this project tells of our passion for design, for materials and their combinations, for hidden details and sudden accents, for dialogue, comparison and constant learning that our profession gives us every time.
Since the first ideas for a project, we can’t wait for the apartment to be built. Nothing could ever be more true, especially for this specific project. The client, a truly unique person, with his wife and three twin children, approached our studio when the Abitare In Maggiolina complex was still only on paper, with very clear ideas: he wanted a beautiful, comfortable home tailored to their family, and with a small swimming pool. The project developed over 4 years, with times that followed the events of the Abitare In construction site, but the enthusiasm both on the part of the clients and obviously of the studio, has always remained high and has led us to the desired results: a beautiful house , comfortable, with a swimming pool! The apartment is clearly divided into two areas, the living area which is accessed opens onto the living room communicating with the kitchen, which in turn open onto a terrace with a truly unique view. Kitchen and living room are characterized by an element that designs and envelops them, a bookcase, which becomes a TV wall and then becomes a kitchen, a strong geometry, lightened by the use of white in stark contrast with dark oak. The choice of the “wanded” design of the wood is dictated by the desire to highlight the geometry, emphasizing its shadows. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable and blend perfectly with the environment. The bookcase divides the living room, with the help of a portal, from the study area. From the desks it is possible to see the pool water and hear its noise, what better way to work from home? From the study you pass to the corridor that leads to the sleeping area, a corridor onto which the 4 bedrooms and bathrooms open. The corridor was emphasized and underlined by the use of color, an ultramarine blue of the ceiling and wall that plays with the white of the opposite wall. The children’s bedrooms are custom designed, the idea was applied in 3 slightly different ways, a wallpaper for each child, which is accompanied by the nuance of the details of the bookcase and desk. The master bedroom is deliberately airy and simple, connected to the walk-in closet and the master bathroom. The bathroom is covered in marble and plays on light-dark contrasts, marbles Calacatta vogue White and Armani grey. The children’s bathroom and the guest bathroom are covered with materials from Porcelanosa. A paragraph itself is deserved by the terrace of this house, large, with a splendid view and a small heated swimming pool, to be used both in summer and in winter. Particular attention was given to the design of the green, with the wise help of Fratelli Ignegnoli. The art project, followed in collaboration with Vera Canevazzi Art Consultant, saw a close collaboration between the Parisian artist Nowart (already an old acquaintance of the Nomade studio) and the client. The theme that was explored was “Van Gogh”, a colorful portrait characterizes the living room, accompanied by the Irises in the corridor (reinterpreted by the artist), ending with the wheat field in the bedroom, a fil rouge that accompanies the whole house theme. The wait for the project was worth it, we and our customers are fully satisfied!
In the magnificent setting of Lake Como, in an extremely characteristic small town, an old hotel had been converted into apartments. The ground floor and the mezzanine floor had been designed to become a restaurant, but the project had never been realized. The original state of the premises was unfinished, without systems with very thick walls and vaults in stone and brick, all of which gave the rooms a splendid atmosphere. The clients, in love with the place and the potential enclosed in those walls, immediately asked that it be kept as much of those pre-existences as possible, however much they wanted a house full of comfort. The challenge was immediately accepted with great enthusiasm, thus creating a splendid home. The house is divided into two floors, connected by an internal staircase, on the upper floor the entrance opens onto the large kitchen which is deliberately left clean and linear, to underline the importance of the stone wall. This overlooks the living room and the master bedroom with attached bathroom that look directly onto the lake. From the kitchen you continue towards the dining room, a truly unique environment because it is enclosed between stone walls and a large vaulted brick ceiling, which surmounts the space by wrapping it. A guest bedroom with its internal bathroom concludes the first floor. The stone staircase leads to the lower floor which opens onto a play room entirely covered in stone. This in turn is connected to a TV area that allows access to the children’s room with dedicated bathroom and a second living area that overlooks the internal garden. On the lower floor there is also an additional guest bedroom with bathroom and a laundry room. Great importance was given to the existing finishes, stone and brick walls, arches and passages. The project was aimed at creating a contrast between the elements that are so strongly characterizing and a clean and minimal furniture that embellished the rooms without competing with the existing character. The bathrooms are mainly in resin and stone, with natural colors, designed to accompany the atmosphere of the house with a touch of charm.
Lunch box è un progetto dentro al progetto. A poco più di un anno dall’inaugurazione di Waterbeat Society, primo centro di Hydrospinning in Italia, si è deciso di dotare lo spazio di una funzione aggiuntiva. E’ nata così un’area break, dove è possibile acquistare e consumare cibi e bevande (sani ovviamente!). E così sono state rimosse le vecchie zone massaggi (ne è rimasta solamente una) contenute nei cocoon al piano mezzanino e sono state ricavate postazioni con tavoli e sedute. Al piano inferiore è stata ricavata invece una zona frigorifero, in cui è possibile servirsi scegliendo tra diversi piatti. Il tema progettuale è in linea con quanto esplorato nel resto dello spazio, colori freschi, mood californiani con piccoli accenti che arricchiscono il design.
The new Bonn Street Michael Kors store is located in a Victorian building in central London’s Old Bond Street area. On the ground and second floor is the Women’s Collection, on the second floor is the Men’s Collection, while on the fourth floor is designed a V.I.P. area.The concept of the project is a very interesting mix, on the one hand it wants to preserve the typical architectural elements of the Victorian building, starting with its fireplaces, while on the other hand the intervention Sta between contemporary taste and an industrial-chic taste. An alternation of wood and concrete on the floor, ceilings and walls creates an interesting rhythm in the building’s ascent. Plaster cornices typical of the Victorian style have been restored and revived in a more contemporary way in the use of marble around the fireplaces. It was chosen to intervene with vintage furnishings That characterize the environment with a domestic flavor. The idea behind the project is to create a store where customers can feel at home.
The project is located in one of the more expanding areas of Milano, near Fondazione Prada.
The offices are located in a loft on two levels, a lower floor with an open space area, one office and a meeting room, and mezzanine level, where the main office and meeting room are organized which overlooks the double height space.
The interiors want to reflect the young and dynamic character of society, bright and clear spaces, characterized by an industrial taste with pop accents.
A cement-effect wallpaper was applied on the double-height wall to recall the industrial origin of the space. This was then characterized by a red neon phrase, which contrasts with the rest with a pop accent.
In order to optimize the space, most of the furniture are designed to measure, like the iconic furniture at the entrance, which has a double function: waiting area for clients and on the back, support for the coffee area.
Overall it is a simple and effective intervention, which in a few colors and signs characterizes a strong identity.
Concept design, and consequent creation of the Kiwie Fashion Cloud e-cigarette stores. The idea for the project arose from the desire to represent frames, furniture, objects in the Baroque style, with highly contemporary precious materials, plexiglass and steel. A contrast that enhances the stores, making them unique.
Project for the interiors of the restaurant BIS in Milan. The idea comes from the desire to evoke the typical interior of the Pugliese farms: the niches in plaster, majolica tiles, stone cutting on the floors. The colors evoke the Mediterranean lands. The furniture, specially designed for the restaurant, echo the rural character of the farms, iron and raw wood. Particular attention has been given to the lighting, lamps that illuminate differently every corner. Particolare attenzione è stata data all’illuminazione degli ambienti, lampade che illuminano in modo differente ogni angolo.
Project for a cooking school. The tones are deliberately country chic, with a touch of familiarity, warmth of a typical home.
