“The goal of architecture is life, if you don’t create life, forget it”. These words sum up architect Antonio Citterio’s philosophy. The Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architectural firm designed the “Nove by Citterio” six floor building, covering a surface of over 27,000 sqm, with offices to accommodate over 1,300 people. The building was designed according to the most advanced environmental sustainability criteria and reduced energy impact.
“Nove by Citterio” is located along the Luise-Ulrich-Strasse, near the Arnulf Park in Munich, Germany, an area which is undergoing fast development. The bronzed aluminium window frames give the facade a particularly dynamic and three-dimensional aspect. From the terraces and the sixth floor, it is possible to enjoy an amazing view including the Alps. Inside, the building shows a perfect balance between public spaces and working areas.
To furnish the lounge area several Flexform Guscio sofas and armchairs covered in soft tobacco leather were selected, as well as some Feel Good armchairs and Tris occasional tables, also by Flexform, in the elegant finish combining a brown stained ashwood base and golden Calacatta marble tops, all of which were designed by Antonio Citterio.
Flexform’s luxury furniture aesthetic is characteristic of a sober elegance that translates into essential forms and soft, never gaudy materials. The Flexform world is made of good manners and good taste, a gentle aesthetic; the style is simple, deconstructed, refined down to the smallest details.
Il Lusso is Flexform’s exclusive partner in South Africa. They offer a range of Italian luxury furniture brands which are design-orientated and functional.
