Murano. Saarinen. Mies. Starck. Carrera. Fornasetti.
Fashion designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s home in Milan strips down two adjoining 1930’s terrazzo-floored apartments to its architectural bones and inserts layers of contemporary structural elements and Italian mid-century classic furnishings in tones of gray, black, wood, and amber. Each piece appears hand-picked and carefully placed so minimally, almost in appreciation of its aesthetic form and pure function. The entire space is a highly-sophisticated study in restrained modernism — the perfect dose of traditional detail, architectural mischief, and design history homage.
