Even though my Milan report may be done for the year, I would still like to share with you a few little nuggets of goodness I’ve stashed up my sleeve – like this exquisite work by Milan-based furniture designer Pietro Russo. I met Pietro at the very first event we attended in Milan called JUICE. This is where he exhibited two of his latest products released this year – Piuma table and Voliera circular metal shelf (above), both of which made me fall in love in an instant.

During the day spent at Ventura Lambrate, I spotted some of his beautiful lights designed for Dante (below) which are equally as beautiful.

I adore Russo’s flawless and painfully elegant aesthetic, and his understanding of refined silhouettes and slender proportions. Not to mention his palette of black, brass and blonde timbers. I mean, even his invite for the Milan exhibition is painfully beautiful – don’t you think? What a dude. Needless to say, he is also a really sharp dresser.

Visit Pietro Russo’s website and his blog for more.

    Wow, that what we call as innovation and creation at its best. I have seen various works of Pietro Russo, but these one looks to be his best till date. Certainly, they are going to be one of my saved archives.

    I have always like utilizing shelvings to provide me with extra storage space around the house. However, there is just so much that a wall can contain. The vertical metal shelves depicted here is different though. It does not utilize the wall space, but yet provide an ample number of shelves because if stretches from the ceiling until the floor. It serves as a beautiful piece of furniture too.

    I am in love with these lights, they are absolutely stunning and so elegant and whimsical. Pietro Russo is a man with taste and a unique sense of style, I followed the link to his website and am totally in love with his idea of storage shelves. The concertina effect separating 2 spaces is amazing, so strong and durable and yet their structure seems to take up minimal space.
