Let’s cross the ocean and jump right to Design Miami. Today we would love to present you an outstanding Italian collaboration. Here Fendi presents THE HAPPY ROOM, a collection of carefully curated and designed objects and furnishings by architect and designer Cristina Celestino whose work we already admired at the Salone del Mobile 2016.

Two of the main starting points were: to adopt the idea of the luxurious, elegant and sophisticated space concepts of a traveling VIP lounge and to embrace the colorful palette Gio Ponti created for the Villa Planchart in Caracas. First of all, the place was made to create a very private and personal experience, on a more abstract level:

A space that brings value to time devoted to oneself, where the concept of time is understood as an intrinsic design virtue of the various pieces where time is required to produce finely crafted objects.

Secondly, the colors of the room are not only a tribute to the colorful palette of Gio Ponti. If you look closely, you will discover, that Celestino is picking up a pastel version of an analogous color scheme of green, yellow-green and yellow and on the other hand the contrasting pale mix of nude, terra-cotta, pink and pale lavender. The opposition of the cool and warm contrasts and a few splashes of blue add much interest to this innovative and distinctive look the designer created.

Another interesting contrast she works with, is the play of soft, rounded forms of the sofa, lamps, tables and screens  next to the graphic and edgy inlays of marble.  Also, have you noticed the transportation of a idea usually used in fashion to interior? Those gorgeous tables look like gigantic ear studs. Another connection that can be drawn from fashion to interior. The brass elements, that remind us of clasps of earrings become a periodic accent of the collection and add a playful approach to Calestino’s work.
