Condé Nast House & Garden - - MILAN REPORT -

Oblig­a­tory al­most for the Mi­lan Sa­lone, au­da­cious de­sign got no more he­do­nis­tic than at Di­more Stu­dio’s ‘Lim­ited Edi­tion’, the new col­lec­tion of nine one-of-a-kind pieces by Emil­iano Salci. Pre­sented in a proto-in­dus­trial fo­rum of rooms with pur­ple car­pet­ing and gold walls, clas­sic pieces from the late 19th and early 20th cen­tury were up­cy­cled and re­pro­filed. an al­lur­ing and flam­boy­ant vi­sion­ary, salci de­con­structed the con­soles, bars, low ta­bles and buf­fets, trans­form­ing them with new fit­tings and bright new lac­quers, in a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als like brass and pol­ished steel that breathed wild new life and ir­rev­er­ent charisma into them. Mean­while, an­other Mi­lanese leg­end, nina Yashar, chose de­signer, ar­chi­tect and cre­ator of im­mer­sive won­der­lands, In­dia Mah­davi, to trans­form her gallery, nil­u­far, into a club en­vi­ron­ment us­ing gio Ponti fur­ni­ture from her own col­lec­tion and ex­trav­a­gant silk mu­rals from Mah­davi, to pulse-pop­ping ef­fect.
