Studiopepe recently designed the new interior for ‘Avart‘, a fashion boutique in Lugano, focused on iconic and emerging international brands. The Studio conceived a space characterized by natural tones and soft geometries in which material contrasts and precious textures create a welcoming atmosphere that tells of a refined and contemporary femininity.
Pieces designed by Studiopepe such as Lazybones armchairs for Baxter, Bonfire lamp for Gallotti & Radice, Lunar Addiction carpet for CC-Tapis and Affinità Elettive vases for Bloc Studios alternate in an elegant stylistic layering together with custom or iconic furnishings such as De Sede‘s Terrazza sofa .
The making of ‘Avart’
Studiopepe about their latest Architectural project: Nude-colored micro-sand covers the walls and floor, creating a neutral and sensual shell in which the pure volumes that shape the space are enhanced. The large cylindrical column in rough plaster and the helical staircase which, like a continuous ribbon, connects the two levels of the boutique become the protagonist sculptural elements of the shop.
The space is also enhanced by the use of pure marble whose veins and intense color embellish the neutral palette that recalls the various shades of the complexion. Travertino Silver covers the entrance front and the interior furnishings, while rough and irregular slabs of Smeraldo Onyx and Fusion Pink marble are transformed by Alimonti into display tables in a poetic game of non-finished. Cosmo gray fused glass screens mark the space, dividing it into different functional areas. // text and images courtesy Studiopepe
