Tradition and future

Vudafieri - Saverino Partners has transformed a historic building in the heart of Shanghai into a multifunctional space to contain the headquarters of Christie’s
Data Pubblicazione: 2 February 2018

The Christie’s headquarters in China, created by the Milan-based studio Vudafieri – Saverino Partners in collaboration with the French studio (based in Shanghai) DDM – Debelle de Montby, is a modern, luminous multifunctional space.

With an area of 1000 m2 on two of the three levels of the Ampire Building, a facility in colonial style designed by British architects at the start of the 1900s, the new headquarters is in the exclusive pedestrian zone of Yuanmingyuan Road, in the Bund, the oldest and most elegant district of Shanghai.

The first floor contains the main lobby, the library and the offices, while the second is for exhibits and auctions. The building is organized as a work area, but also as a gathering place for art lovers and collectors during exhibitions, private sales, conferences and other events.

Boffi & De Padova in Paris

Three brands, two locations, one lifestyle
Data Pubblicazione: 31 January 2018

Boffi and De Padova, with MA/U Studio, present two new spaces in Paris.

Until now, in the French capital Boffi had two showrooms: one for the bath collections, the other for the kitchens. Now, with recent acquisitions, the two addresses remain the same, but their inner spaces have undergone a complete metamorphosis.

The store at Rue de la Chaise 12 has been renovated and transformed as the flagship store of De Padova. The refined, elegant space has the look of an Italian loft, where the creations of the historic design brand interact with Boffi solutions. The displays also feature the minimal systems of MA/U Studio.
