After Milan Furniture Fair 2015, Brera Design District has another life…where architecture and design are mixed! Piero Lissoni gives a huge touch to a Milan public space, Torre Velasca! At Botanical Garden in Brera there is an installation called “Geometrical Garden”, Living Divani’s outdoor collection is back in the limelight alongside its designer, Piero Lissoni!
For the entire duration of Expo 2015, a trail of sophisticated relax will envelop one of the busiest crossroads of the capital of fashion and design, requalifying the appearance of the square in front of one of its most well-loved architecture and design landmarks, the Torre Velasca Milano, which was subjected to the cultural protection status by the Cultural Heritage Authority in 2011 thanks to its high historical and artistic value.
Torre Velasca is part of Urban Up, the property requalification project of the Gruppo Unipol aimed at enhancing the value of some of the most important Milan Modern architecture buildings that it owns. It is a new temporary urban space dedicated to the inhabitants and visitors who will invade the city over the coming months, pre-empting the refined and top-quality spirit of the majestic general requalification project of the Tower.
Under the metal structure constructed to support the future scaffolding in order to renovate all of the external parts of Torre Velasca Milano, a garden has been set up; a slow, calm oasis with a spectacular 360º view of the moving city, where the raw, industrial aesthetics of the scaffolding mixes with the elegance of Living Divani furniture, with the contribute of Kerakoll Design House for finishing, Flos for lightning, Nespoli Vivai for plants and Carnini Irrigazione for the maintenance of this green area.
In a continuous route around the entire perimeter of the building, various settings show the most famous Living Divani pieces together with the latest products, both for outdoor furnishings. You are immediately transported into the world of Living Divani formal purity with an Extrasoft design Piero Lissoni composition in fabric color anthracite, displaying an informal appearance and soft comfort, where welcoming and cosy elements are placed alongside each other in regular geometries.
