Featured Preview – Milan Design Week 2022
Villa Necchi Campiglio is an oasis in the middle of Milan: built in the 1930s by architect Piero Portaluppi for an industrialist family and renovated in the 1950s by architect and designer Tomaso Buzzi, the magnificent building is still a work of art today. Elements of rationalism as well as art deco, neoclassical and renaissance architecture are combined. Since a harmonious atmosphere and practical use of the rooms were important to the clients, Portaluppi was able to design the house down to the last detail - from the floor plan to the door handle. Thus, the architecture and the elegant interior are fascinating to this day and inspire visitors with their extraordinary aesthetics. Another highlight is the lush baroque garden of the house. Gaggenau, the traditional manufacturer of luxurious built-in kitchen appliances, has chosen this garden as the location for its first exhibition in the centre of Milan. In the glass pavilion of the Residence, an installation is thus created that provides a good insight into the Gaggenau range and enables encounters with creative people - such as the marble master Salvatori or the ceramics specialist Kaufmann. The event is rounded off by the supporting programme "A Statement of Form", which offers lectures and workshops that can also be experienced via livestream.
