Another side project is the development together with director Roberto Badò of a brand of rehabilitated one-of-a-kind furniture, Renaissance Rehab. These are family heirlooms given new life with respect to a circular economy using rare, out-of-catalog fabrics by Italian textile house, Rubelli. The intuitive pairings of fabric and heirloom are the work of Milanese interior designer Nicoletta Gatti.
The project includes logo development (above, Charlotte Moore) and a series of editorial images aimed at the design press. The response has been overwhelming to the first series (pictured here, photography director Roberto Badò) and also in the second series which I’ll share a bit later. Abitare, Elle Decor, Corriere della Sera and many others have featured the chairs which are part of the “Sedute Esaurite” Collection (chairs of various style and vintage).
