Villa Blanc, a historic building in Rome dating back to 1922, protected by heritage regulations, has recently been opened as the new facility for the activities of the LUISS Business School.


The renovation coordinated by the architect Massimo Picciotto has made it possible to revitalize the complex and its park, reinterpreted for a new purpose.


The design and installation of the interiors also involved XOffice of Rome, a company of reference on an international level in the contract sector, and a qualified partner of Thonet.


Thonet has produced customized items that fit perfectly into this remarkable context. The modular tables of the A 1700 Evolution system, designed by Uwe Sommerlade, have been made in special sizes and forms for all the classrooms, with the Resopal melamine and solid oak finish. The classic S 64 cantilevered seats in steel tubing by Marcel Breuer – artistic copyright Mart Stam – have been updated with Kvadrat covers in blue, and armrests in solid oak.
