New in Italian Design: Internoitaliano on the Rooftop

View all 10 Photos

For the brand’s third appearance at Fuorisalone, Internoitaliano presented their latest collection on a private rooftop in the heart of Milan. The new designs stood in view of classic architecture such as the Sforza Castle, the Duomo, and Torre Velasca as well as the more modern Porta Nuova. Ushering in a new season of creativity, the backdrop underscored the Italian heritage of the designers represented and the influence of the world in which we live. GELA and GORO by Massimo Barbierato; and NEPI, TEMÙ, and ONZO by Giulio Iacchetti (whose Gessato interview can be read here)

GELA and GORO by Massimo Barbierato are a serving bottle and a pair of drinking glasses. Blown by Parise Vetro in Marostica (Vicenza), the glass has a frosted finish that makes it look almost as though the tableware has been lost at sea and found on a beach such as those of the island of Crevan. The bottle is available for 60€ and comes with an ash wood cap; the matching glasses are 34€.

Iacchetti’s large, 23-piece bookshelf, NEPI, echoes the look of Roman aqueducts. Arched like the iconic engineering, the shelves are aesthetically alluring and can be easily moved to create smaller units and fresh shapes in the home. Handcrafted by artisan Giuseppe Cattaneo of Cesano Maderno (Monza Brianza), NEPI is made from solid walnut without the use of screws. The impressive furniture design is available for pre-order from Luisaviaroma for $17,265.

Also a solid wood design, Iacchetti’s TEMÙ was made by Somaschini Felice and Nipoti in Mariano Comense (Como). Composed of a three-legged base and a comfortable trefoil seat, the stool is ideal for sitting back and playing a jazz song. The seating comes in two heights and is finished in one’s choice of natural oil or black lacquer. Prices begin at 334€.

Last but not least, ONZO is a blue ceramic vase in the shape of a snapper. Handmade by Ceramiche Mazzotti in Albissola (Savona), Italy’s ceramic district, the fish-inspired design pays homage to the country’s artisan craft and coastal culture. Internoitaliano values the playful centerpiece at 159€.
