Setting the stage in style
Milan-based scenographer Pietro Russo is an experienced and sensitive designer of both homes and furniture alike. The triggers of his imagination: a building’s history, an apartment’s signs of age, a style unique to that space alone. He loves to look for details, hidden tracks, pre-existing features that might reveal themselves with a little careful searching. Russo must also take the needs of his clients into consideration, giving thought to their professional and personal needs.
He believes that a house and its furniture should coexist in harmony.
The designer brings together both style and necessity but never forgets that a successful interior is mostly contingent on the latter. He designs furniture with its surroundings in mind: he believes that a house and its furniture should coexist in harmony, and for this reason, he mainly works in the realm of the custom-made.
Russo’s apartment in Città Studi is consistent with his approach to work, and his classic brown USM Modular Furniture Haller fits right in, elegantly concealing clothes and documents inside and displaying meaningful objects on top. The wall in back has been stripped to reveal the early decorative features of the 1940s building, so that those who visit can witness the space’s history. Time is part of the uniqueness of the scene – and what makes this particular scene special.
