02A, the duo of Roman interior designers and architects

The homely interior that it gives life to is places to belong Study 02Afounded in Rome by architects Thomas Grossi And Marco Rulli in 2014. For them, the concept of home does not (necessarily) go hand in hand with “taking root”, and only in that way does space manage to reflect the dialogue it creates with those who live there. Soft or sharp colors, environments completed in the smallest detail or in deliberately modified portions as little as possible, extroverted patterns or large monochromatic surfaces become tools to reflect customers’ personalities and to relate them to their new home.

How did you meet and how did your study start?

We met for the state exam, united by a long and non-linear university road, interrupted by passions and experiences in other areas. We both had to start right away with something concrete, we were “delayed” and it made us throw ourselves over.

What kind of projects are you following most at the moment?

We primarily follow interior design projects, apartments and business premises. Getting into people’s lives, participating in their life projects are the most interesting and rewarding aspects of our work.

How does a project arise and how does it grow? How does the concept arise and where do you find inspiration?

Genesis and design development often follow different and unpredictable paths. Basically, the people to whom the project is dedicated inspire us a lot: the beginning of each intervention goes through a process of getting to know the customers, a work of interpreting what are practical needs, but also inner hopes. This is an intimate journey made up of memories and future perspectives that definitely determine choices, reflections and details. In terms of training and taste, we are thus very much bound to pre-existence, to what the place was before our arrival.

If you were to describe your way of imagining space, what are the most important and indispensable elements for youto give identity to a place?

Hard question. Personal (Marco, ed) I like to read and imagine space as the relationship between the elements that make it up: materials, light, functional areas, objects. I find that all of these elements have their own personality, their own voice. Thanks to dialogue qualifies a place. Those who live it, however, must be followers. I can not imagine a room without thinking about who is going to use it.

Is there a project you are particularly fond of more than others?
One of the jobs we are most attached to is clearly the newly completed apartment for a diplomat. The nature of the client, who always traveled to work, actually gave us a broader opportunity for reflection on the concept of home as a place to belong, as a manifestation of one’s values.

What is the most common request from customers?
One of the recurring desires is to “utilize the space” – a desire that we do not really like very much. Because space is not to be utilized, it should be composed and articulated with criteria that also include emptiness. We often find that we discuss this with customers, and sometimes we manage to convey our thoughts positively.

How would you define your vision of modern lifestyle? What relationship do we have to space, and how can we improve it?

We have an almost philosophical vision, we see the home as a part of ourselves, a physical place that is actually interior space. This empathic approach, which aims to find oneself with the places we live, we believe can be a way to improve the relationship with them, often at a level of pure functionality.

How do you imagine the space of the future?

We imagine spaces that are increasingly open and flexible, designed for change, reassuring and friendly in their willingness to adapt to everyone’s needs. In a word, inclusive.
