    MSGM Fashion Headquarters by Fabio Ferrillo | Yellowtrace

    MSGM Fashion Headquarters in Milan by Fabio Ferrillo. The preserved and renewed brickwork is paired with the dove-grey and pink tones of the new irregular partitions, a combination that creates surprising perspectives.  The decor is the result of prolongued research, with many pieces handpicked from galleries in Antwerp and Paris.

    The great central skylight, the doors and windows have been carefully salvaged, while an unused air shaft has been connected to the private office to be used as a scenographic source of light.

    The fireplace is an original mid-19th-Century Louis Philippe in grey marble, specifically imported from the south of France.

     

    Italian architect Fabio Ferrillo has given new life to an abandoned early 20th-Century blacksmith’s workshop in Milan, by transforming it into the new MSGM fashion headquarters. The original space was seriously run-down, but it’s crude and post-industrial aesthetic is now it’s most fascinating and contemporary aspect. The building’s open-plan shell is divided into an office space, research archive, design area, kitchen, meeting room and courtyard. Ferrillo retained many of the building’s original features, including the exposed brick walls, abandoned machinery and suspended pulleys, but added a new cement floor and industrial ventilation system.

    The ceiling projectors, all from abandoned industrial sites of the île de France, are paired with lamps of typical Italian design. The beautiful canvases by Nathalie du Pasquier give the finishing touch to this ecletic, refined and contemporary space.

    Original 1950s pieces by Friso Kramer come from Flanders, the grey and yellow shelving, the curved wooden chairs, the private office’s armchairs, handpicked from galleries in Antwerp and Paris. The grand central table, an original Ico Parisi from 1960, re-imported to Italy from a gallery in Belgium.

    The raw brickwork is paired with new partitions painted in grey and pink tones – a combination that creates surprising perspectives and a spectacular backdrop for the new additions such as an original mid-19th-Century grey marble fireplace. The central skylight, the doors and windows have been carefully salvaged, while an unused air shaft has been connected to the private office to be used as a scenographic source of light.

    Various original 1950s pieces by Friso Kramer, handpicked from galleries in Antwerp and Paris, just like the grand central table – an original Ico Parisi from 1960 – were all reimported to Italy from a gallery in Belgium. Vintage furniture and lighting sourced from The Netherlands and France combine with colourful canvases by French artist Nathalie du Pasquier, complete this eclectic, refined and contemporary space.

    Extreme love!
