My oh my. This stunning apartment in Milan is making me want to cross over to the dark side, if ya know what I’m sayin’. So elegant, moody and dramatic – I don’t know where to start.

The space, designed by Milanese studio Dordoni Architetti, under the guidance by Luca Zaniboni, is flooded with natural light entering the space from the side and from above. The clever choice of dark grey walls and concrete floors creates a dramatic effect – the apartment interior has an almost gallery-like quality, with Pecoraro’s extraordinary collection of furniture and art by contemporary artists and masters of design taking centre stage. Furniture by Jean Prouvé, Charles & Ray Eames, Franco Albini and Giò Ponti, mix with ceramics by Fornasetti and other lesser known artists and makers.

Despite the fact this is a very dark space, there are still plenty of moments of (design Wank Phrase alert!) ‘light and shade’, and a beautifully controlled depth achieved through the layering of “darkness”. Masterfully done.

    An interesting approach to the natural light + dark palette. Would love to see the rest of the house and if perhaps more texture was used.
