Elegance Is Taste, With A Dash Of Boldness

Zenucchi Design Code

A flat overlooking the walls of Bergamo is a triumph of elegance, style and sophistication

How much magic Bergamo has in it. So much history, so much life. Two cities, one protected by the other. Part brides, part sisters. Bergamo is its walls, its ancient facades. The streets that climb, the horse chestnuts that bow down. This flat overlooks her, proud lady of an ancient past. With its large windows, its proud bearing. Refined expression of a elderly couple, it is a rich flat. Which, today, bears the signature of Zenucchi Design Code. It is rich in marble, brass, leather and velvet. It is an elegant, bright flat, with ample spaces, large paintings, and fabrics as blue as the deep blue sea. But, above all, it is a flat that is never dull. The home of an important businessman, it has a living area that is an expression of his class: here, an entire brass-clad wall echoes the mirrored corner leading to the study. And then the suspended TV cabinet, and the wall to ceiling cupboard. It is the brass that is the real star. It is the backdrop for the furniture designed by Antonio Citterio for Maxalto, elegant symbols of style and bourgeoisie: the round table with its white Calacatta marble top, the velvet armchairs. And the sofas, sumptuous and cosy.

How much magic there is in Bergamo

That are blue, but a blue blended with brass. That are a touch of colour on the rug, and whose guardian is art. Scenes of battles, still lifes and religious subjects, side by side, against the backdrop of a white wall screening the kitchen. Full-height sliding doors open onto a Boffi composition with its dark brown aluminium doors and apache lacquered columns. Clean, essential design. With a contemporary look at the world. On the other hand, the bookcase that serves as a backdrop for the Vitra armchair in the study looks to the past. It is the 835 Infinito model by Franco Albini for Cassina, dates back to the 1950s, and is extraordinarily contemporary. But it is in the sleeping area that brass returns. In the walk-in wardrobe by Porro with swing doors, burnished frame and smoked glass. The leather bench in the middle of the room recalls the Minotti bed. While, in the bathroom, it is Travertino marble that defines the spaces. Because elegance is good taste, combined with a dash of boldness¹. And here, in this flat overlooking the walls of Bergamo, there is elegance. And boldness, sophisticated and proud, pure.
