Since I am crushing on the work of Madrid-based designer I thought I would share a random assortment of other projects of his, including some commercial spaces. That space above though – WOW! I’m also mesmerized by the last 2 spaces (from the VIP area of Summa, the Contemporary Art Fair of Madrid).
Terracotta and dirtied greens, salmon and persimmon, walls clad in shadowy bucolic wallpaper as backdrop to contemporary furniture that can only be classified as “statement”.

Think classicism meets contemporary values, new and old balanced just so but with a slight misalignment for the brivido, the frisson, the thrill. The beautiful old bones, the stark beauty of the white walls, the bespoke furniture, the light all create this urban classic by Rome-based architect and designer .
