Unique metaphysic conception and a subtle interplay of resonances are introduced by UdA architects in this mezzanine level apartment overlooking the square that symbolizes the city of Turin- Piazza San Carlo. Fluttering with the painter De Chirico definition of metaphysics, according to which “metaphysics is that a new kind of truth that is concealed in all objects if only we manage to see it or imagine it outside its usual context”, the designers play with bland and sophisticated, disturbing and reassuring, in the immediate air of familiarity and, at the same time, mysteriousness.
Predisposed to a stage layout thanks to its infinite arch-like windows the space provides the initial input for the construction of a vaguely metaphysical home environment. The objects inhabiting various premises in this apartment; its details, furnishing and surfaces solutions (like size, shape and texture) are all on the border between the earthly and surreal, art and function and become firmly situated in an intermediate landscape between the interior and exterior of the location.
Tunnel-shaped progression from the rear to the living room and kitchen, both facing the square, is conducive to a certain perkiness of the details. Oddly shaped panels on the walls and ceilings, punchy colors and details, exceptional design of chairs and lamps -everything in this apartment interior is in a delicate balance between rediscovered and never previously seen. Truly- a metaphysical exercise for mind and senses.
