Daniele, who are you? Can you tell us about yourself?
I’m a young designer, specialising in interior design. I collect older designer pieces, which I attempt to combine with other, more contemporary pieces of my own design to create a new connection. For the galerie Nilufar, I created the concept of the Tavolo 01, Supermobile2046, which was presented at the last Salone del Mobile in 2018.
Can you tell us about your background?
I trained at the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) in Milan, then trained for a further 6-and-a-half years at Dimore Studio. For the last year, I’ve been running my own company, Studio2046.
How would you define your style in terms of interior design?
Which period or personality inspires your work?
The 1950s, and Carlo Mollino.
What do you like most about interior design?
What’s the first thing that you notice when you arrive somewhere?
How do you make use of colour in a house?
I like to combine different geometries to create a composition, and to combine and link the different colours that they represent.
Where does your furniture come from?
From all over the world.
What’s your favourite style?
Who are the artists that inspire you?
Dan Flavin and Walter De Maria.
Could you tell us about your plans for the future?
I have a number of different projects in the works, including the restoration of a 17th century villa in the hills of the Pavese region. It will be a joint project with Marta Celada, a top Milanese architect.
