Flaviano Capriotti Architetti interior design between memory and art


In Milan’s center, in Via Revere next to Sempione Park, standing Torre al Parcoa residential building designed by Vico Magistretti and Franco Longoni and built between 1953 and 1956. The twenty-story tower is a symbol of a bygone era and an important testament to the city’s residential architecture. In one of the apartments on the upper floors of the building, the Flaviano Capriotti Architetti studio was commissioned to create a new interior design that meets the needs of the young owners, professionals and art collectors. With the studio’s intervention, architect Flaviano Capriotti chose to completely redesign the apartment’s original layout, for a project that respects the existing historical context, but is guided by a functional approach that will make the rooms comfortable and adequate for the clients’ contemporary needs.
The finishes of the original apartment have been preserved, creating a dialogue with Magistretti’s architecture and with the concept of a refined, sober and bourgeois residence, characterized by the high quality materials used and by the spaces. A key need of the new interior was to showcase the clients’ art collection, combining it with bespoke furniture and design objects. The entrance to the apartment thus becomes a small art gallery, where the works take center stage, enhanced by a diffused and soft light obtained thanks to the shape designed for the false ceiling. The artistic motif continues in the study where, along with small sculptures and a collection of early publications, we find several design icons, including the Eclisse lamp designed by Vico Magistretti for Artemide, the Luisa chair created by Franco Albini for Cassina and the table designed by AG Fronzoni for Cappellini. Other works by masters of Italian design, including Gio Ponti, Antonio Citterio and Michele De Lucchi elegantly decorate the large and bright living room.
Masterpieces of art and icons of Italian design therefore become the leitmotif that unfolds in all the interior design spaces, creating the image of a refined and elegant apartment where a perfect balance is achieved between memory, art and design.
