Design is the keyword of the new apartment designed by architects Gabriele and Oscar Buratti in Milan: a rich and structured project that sees Porro products as the undisputed protagonists of living. Essential lines, strong geometries and striking colors define the environments, which follow one another fluidly allowing visual crossings in every direction. To remain in line with the concept of the space focused on elegance and refinement, several Porro products have been selected, defined not only by the minimal charm and clean shapes, but also by the high quality of natural materials and the respect of their intrinsic characteristics. On the lower floor, in the living area, an entire wall was dedicated to Modern, the Porro system of modular containers to design spaces through clear and essential signs, enhanced by black canneté surfaces. To complete this space, two products designed for the company by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti themselves: the Jeff table, which combines a majestic solid chestnut top with two legs whose particular geometry, an open semi-curve, triggers ever-changing reflection effects, and the Gallery sideboard, characterized by a rational architectural volume whose distinctive feature are the two vertically sliding doors made of black-stained hemlock. In the study area, the attention is captured by a wall dedicated to Load-it, the iconic bookcase designed by Wolfgang Tolk in 1995, versatile and visually striking thanks to the wall panels that so thin support shelves that the books seem to float in the air. On the upper floor, dedicated to an enveloping and intimate sleeping area, the protagonist of the bedroom is the high and compact Sadoru bed, with a total leather look outlined by consistent thicknesses and a wide curved headboard that recalls high fashion. Finally, there is the Storage Battente closet in different finishes and colors, embellished by the Glove handles built into the door with leather upholstery.
