Maurizio Peccoraro’s Milan Apartment

The space, designed by Milanese studio Dordoni Architetti, under the guidance by Luca Zaniboni, is flooded with natural light entering the space from the side and from above. The clever choice of dark grey walls and concrete floors creates a dramatic effect – the apartment interior has an almost gallery-like quality, with Pecoraro’s extraordinary collection of furniture and art by contemporary artists and masters of design taking centre stage. Furniture by Jean Prouvé, Charles & Ray Eames, Franco Albini and Giò Ponti, mix with ceramics by Fornasetti and other lesser known artists and makers. source : yellow trace via decordemon

Casa Cavia – concept store Buenos Aires

Fine food, fragrances, flowers, and literature come together under a single roof at Casa Cavia, a new concept store and restaurant in Buenos Aires. The brainchild of creative force Guadalupe Garcia Mosqueda, the enterprise inhabits a gracious 1927 home that has been thoughtfully updated by the architecture and design firm KallosTurin. There’s much to delight in: Pick up a bouquet from the florist, sample locally concocted perfumes, or repair to the stylish dining room—helmed by Pablo Massey, a protégé of renowned chef Francis Mallmann—with a volume from the bookstore-library, run by art publisher Ampersand. source : AD      casacavia.com
