Up In The Sky - An Interior Design Project by Rossana Orlandi

Up in the Sky – April 2016

Up In the Sky is the first public interior project curated by Rossana Orlandi and it takes place in one of the exclusive penthouse of the Residences designed by Daniel Libeskind at CityLife, with a breathtaking overlook on the city of Milan.

The project mixes elements of industrial design by the most cutting edge brands together with pieces of designers from the selection of Galleria Rossana Orlandi like Os and Oos, Matteo Casalegno, Jacopo Foggini, Nika Zupanc, Nacho Carbonell, Fernando Mastrangelo, Oskar Zieta, Erik Olovson and Kyuhyung Cho, Laurence Humier, Umzikim, Hillside Out, Germans Ermics, Roberto Giacomucci, Fabio Pietrantonio, Giovanna Carboni, Michela Castagnaro and many others.

The interior project aims to create an interaction between the clean and geometrical shapes of Daniel Libeskind architecture and the eclectic and avant-gardiste character of Rossana Orlandi’s selection.

A magnificient view on the Zaha Hadid tower on construction stands as an inspiration for the choice of furniture and accessories, revealing several links to the idea of building site. This inspiration its declared in the use of materials, like the raw steel and natural wood of the Raw sofa by Matteo Casalegno, the reclaimed piping tubes of the Piet Hein Eek Table for outdoor, the mix of sand and resin in the mirror by Fernando Mastrangelo.



To counter balance these strong and rough material Rossana Orlandi teamed up with some of most refined italian design manufacturers like Boffi for the bathroom, Flos for all the technical lights and Moroso for the Patricia Urquiola’s white sofa in the living room.

The result is an open ambience that from one side follows the straight lines of the architecture but at the same time tend to soften them in order to give a warm character to the different spaces following Rossana Orlandi ideas of a House as a place where apparently opposites elements can mix in a perfect match.
