Porro in a sophisticated apartment in Hong Kong



In Hong Kong on the Sai Kung peninsula, interior design studio Pocket Square relies on the best Italian design to breathe new life into the interior of a three-storey private property. The home is conceived as a sophisticated retreat for privacy, relaxation and aesthetics: the dining area features Porro's imprint with Piero Lissoni's elegant Metallico table in antique red and Voyage chairs with precise lines designed by GamFratesi. Metallico's unique finishing is obtained through a high-thickness catalyzed coating, followed by manual polishing and waxing, bearing witness to the search for a not-flat color, rich in nuances and textures, capable of creating a sense of depth and shininess like the oil paintings of the 17th century. Voyage, on the other hand, is made up of an exposed framework in tapered solid maple; across it, a saddle leather covering is stretched and gives shape to a very comfortable and ergonomic seat and backrest.
