during new york design week 2015, piero lissoni joins forces with a group of emerging brooklyn designers, architects and artisans — producing both independently and for leading brands — in the realization of the temporary ‘casa lissoni’. the italian designer has conceived the ultimate contemporary space for living and working, pairing classics with locally-produced pieces.

within a 4,000 square foot space in brooklyn’s sunset park neighborhood, lissoni has added his own examples of design — a lacquered grey wardrobe for porro, chairs, tables, upholstery for living divani, a kitchen for boffi and light fixtures from flos. in collaboration with brooklyn-based creatives, lissoni has included the work of local practices within the industrial loft dwelling, comprising pieces from the collections of token, fort standard, snarkitecture, bec brittain, bower, avandi, assembly design, patrick weder, townsend design and PELLE.

the interpretation of the space sees a distinct, yet organic amalgamation of materials, brands, products and styles. in the kitchen, the ‘open’ monobloc stainless steel console by lissoni for boffi is complemented by the glass ‘bubble chandelier’ by PELLE design studio in brooklyn. a laquered grey wardrobe, also by lissoni, for porro acts as a partition between the bathroom and the bedroom, where a sculptural light by brooklyn-based designer patrick weder and the ‘warren lounge chair’ by local design studio token are arranged around the bed.

 

first we brought the main pieces in to the space, and then we brought pieces from factories that are a little more elastic, and finally we started to make the combination between them,’ lissoni tells designboom. ‘the good thing is sometimes you don’t have to design too much. everything is mixed together in a natural way. I think that’s the secret of all of my work — to be natural.’

from now until may 20th, 2015, the new york edition of the 1:1 piero lissoni exhibition, realized in partnership with elle decor italy and curated by carin scheve, will be hosted within next door’s studio’s waterfront loft.
