Un nuovo riferimento nello skyline di New York

Le cucine e i bagni custom made Dada arredano l’ultima realizzazione di Alexico Group in collaborazione con lo studio Herzog & De Meuron al nr. 56 di Leonard Street
Data Pubblicazione: 28 November 2017

56 Leonard Street – New York, lo spettacolare building progettato da Herzog & De Meuron, vincitori del premio Pritzker Prize, nel raffibato quartiere di TriBeCa è una scultura verticale composta da travi a sbalzo e vetro scintillante.

La torre, che contribuisce al progressivo sviluppo dell’iconico skyline di New York, è caratterizzata da un sorprendente dinamismo e vanta dettagli curati in tutti i suoi spazi interni, comprese le cucine custom made realizzate da Dada|Contract Division, che esemplificano lo spirito e la creatività su cui si basa il progetto.

Il sorprendente edificio al nr.56 di Leonard Street realizzato da Alexico Group, accoglie 145 appartamenti, di cui 10 penthouse.

Le cucine e i bagni custom made si ispirano alla forma della struttura scultorea dell’edificio.

Dada, azienda di cucine del Gruppo Molteni, ha realizzato su disegno di Herzog & de Meuron, cucine a vista personalizzate e caratterizzate dalla presenza di isole in color nero con originali top in granito che contrastano con la luminosità dei pensili in vetro acidato a specchio che richiamano la struttura lineare degli esterni.

Dada ha anche prodotto 286 vanities con ante a specchio scorrevoli su misura in grado di riflettere la vista mozzafiato del paesaggio urbano.

L’edificio prevede una sala biblioteca, un teatro/cinema da 25 posti, un’area giochi per bambini, una cucina self catering, una sala fitness, una piscina interna/esterna con solarium.

L’ingresso della torre ospiterà un’opera d’arte commissionata allo scultore britannico Anish Kapoor, che verrà installata nel 2018.

Venini and Peter Marino

A new collaboration with the famous architect and the new Black Belt collection of limited-edition vases
Data Pubblicazione: 28 November 2017

Venini again demonstrates its ability to interpret the ideas of important international creative talents, inviting the architect Peter Marino to design a limited-edition collection, Black Belt, of vases that combine past and present, tradition and design by using the crafts techniques of Murano glass.

The new collection features four geometric forms: oval, square, triangle and figure eight. Each piece embodies harmonious contrasts between the transparency of glass, with subtle pink, green and tea tones, and bands of black that wrap the vases with linear patterns.

The vases are limited editions of 349 pieces per color and size.

Casa UD

A residential solution in Val d’Aosta at an altitude of 1800 meters, requiring no heating thanks to the use of completely natural materials

Project by the studio Tiziana Monterisi Architetto
Data Pubblicazione: 28 November 2017

Tiziana Monterisi Architetto creates Casa UD in Chamois at an altitude of 1816 meters, built over an old ruin dating back to 1834. Using 100% natural avant-garde solutions to reduce environmental impact to a minimum, the studio has made a totally passive house without sacrificing refinement in the design.

For example, thanks to the insulating properties of rice straw inserted in the framework, the building requires no heating or air conditioning: also during the winter, Casa UD keeps its interior at a mild, comfortable temperature.

Humidity is regulated in a natural way by the internal stucco made of raw earth, with natural ventilation.

The building exploits natural sunlight and ventilation; a photovoltaic system captures solar energy as the main source for the production of electricity.

The wooden surfaces (floors, internal doors) have been treated with natural oils, while the masonry surfaces have been completed inside with raw earth and vegetable-based paints.

To guarantee perfect thermal insulation, between the house and the retaining wall cellular glass has been placed, using a material that is 99% recycled and recyclable.

Casa UD is the recent winner of the Premio Sostenibilità 2017 in the category Renovation/Restoration.

30 years of the Juliette Chair

A limited edition and a multidisciplinary project to celebrate the birthday of one of the most representative models of Baleri Italia, designed by Hannes Wettstein
Data Pubblicazione: 27 November 2017

Baleri Italia, for the 30th anniversary of the Juliette Chair by Hannes Wettstein, pays tribute to this design icon Made in Italy with a limited edition of 100 pieces in the champagne color, numbered and signed by the designer.

The edition can already be ordered from Baleri Italia dealers.

At the same time, the company presents the project Juliette meets artists, coordinated by Aldo Parisotto in collaboration with the gallery Studio La Città in Verona.

To encourage constructive interaction between three creative sectors – art, photography and design – the project involves three contemporary artists who share a taste for ongoing chromatic research, who selected the superleggera in their preferred hue, and were then immortalized by three different photographers.

The three artists approach color in different ways. Luigi Carboni transforms it into thick, dense matter on the surface of the canvas; Jacob Hashimoto applies it as a characteristic feature of his mobiles; Herbert Hamak concentrates on its purity, revealed by skillful use of light filtered by resin in his monochrome solids.
