Decorative postmodernism: a modus vivendi with a playful sensibility

This Milanese apartment truly stands out thanks to counter-current interior design by Puntofilipino, abandoning today’s minimalist taste in favour of the strongly decorative aesthetics typical of Art Deco and Pop Art by the Memphis Group, the Italian design and architecture collective founded by Ettore Sottsass and active in the 1980s.

Renowned on the experimental design scene for its ability to create immersive environments, this design studio has here used a very diverse selection of materials, such as metal, plaster and fine fabrics, teamed with bespoke wallcoverings that emphasise the experiential impact of the interiors. The skyline of Bellagio that runs across the living area walls, provides a bucolic backdrop for the residence’s guests and complements the interior aesthetics to create a dreamlike atmosphere.

The use of paper also emphasises the architecture of the rooms, linked by generous arches to give a modern open-space layout, filled with light from the large windows, meeting the needs of both style and planning. The tactile texture and soft colours that permeate the woodland walls bring alive a welcoming scenario that is an invitation to reconnect with nature.
