Milan Design Week 2022: Cristina Celestino’s projects

“For Milano Design Week the usual madness is back. I must actually say that the expectations from customers and partners are very high, as in many cases we have not seen each other in person since 2019. This is a very expected and important moment for everyone. I think we will live one lounge area It is a Fuorisalone different from the pre-pandemic ones, but no less important and full of good initiatives, ”he says Cristina Celestino. As usual, we know that the designer from Pordenone will be the main character in the event with many projects, products and collaborations.

The most important thing is without a doubt his project Anthologywhich continues a journey of discovery of the iconic places in Milan that began in 2018. “After the tram Corallo and Caffè Concerto Cucchi, this year I present a reinterpretation of Fioreria Radaelli, in via Manzoni 16. The place itself is very interesting and important both for the city Milan and for all people who are passionate about architecture and design.It is a building by Guglielmo Ulrich dated 1945 and which has been recently restored so that the square is exactly as he had intended.My intervention interacts with this space, which is characterized by the hybridization between interior and exterior spaces and by a close integration between the interior and the architectural part.Here I will present some new products that I have designed for my brand, Attico Design, and new interpretations of projects that I have already presented for some companies that have contributed as a design partner. “

Then there is an immersive project with Kaldewei and Vogue Germany, where I give a personal reinterpretation of the bathroom space. I continue my collaboration with Brioni oven.

There are also more new products presented at Salone di Mobile: “At the fair, I continue my work Billiani, of which I have been following the artistic direction since 2019. This year we present the designers Constance Guisset and Philip Bestenheider’s new products. For Billiani, I also followed the stand project, as well as for that of Pianca. Also for Pianca, I designed a new collection of upholstered furniture and an armchair, Peonia, as well as a line extension of my Galatea armchair, presented already in 2017. I also present a new modular sofa system for the Tuscan company. Fifths. It’s a product I strongly believe in, with a more contractual calling. “

Although they are many and very different from each other, they are projects proposed by Cristina Celestino they manage to maintain a strong and recognizable identity.

“This connection, which I recognize, comes from my education as an architect, so I use the same design and research method for every experience. I like working on different scales – interiors, furniture and small accessories – as well as with different clients. , from niche artisan brands to industrial design companies that pass through brands related to fashion.Our research holds together our aesthetics and design vision, but above all examines everything that is the customer’s heritage, often based on archive materials and a study of processing methods and selected materials . “
