The re-arrangement of the entrance hall and the living room of this apartment in the center of Milan gives the opportunity to design a sort of exhibition device. The project was born from the need to highlight more the threshold between the hall and the living room and from the desire to re-arrange a space full of objects and works of art.
From the architect: A new custom designed metal shelving system, with inserts in lacquered wood, creates a scenography for objects, works of art, antiquities and curiosity that tell the story of the owner: a sort of modern and minimal Wunderkammer.
On the window side, the system frames the existing openings and hides the existing radiators. The upper band includes a diffused lighting system, while some spotlights are contained in the shelves to illuminate and enhance single objects, such as the narwhal's tusk.
Also the other furniture components, such as the sofas and the small table, are custom designed.
