The same neutral palette from the upper floor is repeated in the new family space. Antique freight pallets were given metal legs and converted into coffee tables, which sit in front of a Greg couch by Zanotta. The modular sofa has polished aluminum alloy feet and a removable cover that can be made in fabric or leather. A metal frame holds elastic suspension strips. The room also features two black RAR chairs by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra. These armchairs are updated versions of the iconic fiberglass originals, now made of polypropylene and aluminum. The piece is known for its role in design history as the first industrially produced plastic chair. A version without armrests is also available, and both could be used outdoors as well.
The decor in the neutral-hued space is the artful chandelier, which is Zettel’z 5 by Ingo Maurer. It is made of stainless steel and heat-resistant satin-frosted glass. The “shades” are actually 40 printed and 40 blank sheets of Japanese paper. It’s a highly creative fixture for the owners, as the blank sheets of paper are meant for personal messages and drawings. All of the furnishings are clean-lined to help keep the space open. Floor to ceiling shelving provides plenty of storage and display space.
In the early nineties, the family — with two young children — established the living are on the first floor, which meant the children had to temporarily share a bedroom. In doing this, Padovani removed all the walls and drop ceilings in the space, opening up the area and revealing a complex and attractive framework of beams and pitched ceiling.
