Elle Decor Café
Temporary, Milano, 2009
A warm and welcoming environment where there would normally be a technical area and a fire escape: Frassinago takes care of the outdoor space of Elle Decor Café at Superstudio Più by creating a terrace where you can relax in the greenery during the Salone del Mobile. Along the perimeter and protecting the small living rooms, hedges of Feijoa sellowiana planted in Corten containers that reference the wooden furniture. Flowering pear trees stand above the relaxation area, while lawn rugs fit into the sandstone flooring. Among the leaves, stem lamps to intimately and softly illuminate a space of relaxation and recreation that seems to have been there for years, while instead it lives only for a few days.
