The Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) in New York is a private foundation for the study and spread of Italian modern art in the United States.
The recent renovation project has transformed a loft of 420 m2 into a space with a flexible layout, with the idea of continuing the work begun by Gianni Mattioli, the father of Laura Mattioli, the present curator; he welcomed visitors to his residence in Milan to see his spectacular collection of modern art.
A fluid space to facilitate the approach to art. CIMA is a foundation and gallery, but also a residence and a space for debate and the production of new ideas.
The New York-based studio Irina Verona Architecture in charge of the project has chosen doors by Lualdi. The Italian company has supplied three models: Rasomuro 55, Rasotouch and Shoin, because they are particularly well-suited to the overall project concept.
With respect to traditional doors, they have no casements, but simply cuts that border the panel. The result is an essential design that can “vanish” inside the walls.
