Contardi join forces with ELLE DECOR ITALIA to celebrate the joy of outdoor living
We are thrilled to celebrate the joy of outdoor living in a glamorous en plein air exhibition: “Elle Decor All’Aperto”, curated by Studiopepe. The project was born from an idea by Elle Decor Italia with the aim of returning in close contact with nature was irresistible.
For this year’s edition, Elle Decor has commissioned Studio Pepe and the landscape architect Marco Bay to create a series of enchanting settings focused on a specific mood, where people can enjoy moments of conviviality outdoors.
Interior design, like a common thread, should increase our connection to the natural environment, and this goal can be achieved by external lighting with a versatile personality, which is why Contardi wanted to be part of it with some pieces from the Outdoor Collection.
Two iconic pieces from our Outdoor Collection have been selected for this project – the iconic MUSE Battery table lamp designed by Tristan Auer, whose braided leather handle allows it to be easily moved from indoors to outside; and also a statement piece, the CUBE Battery floor lamp by Massimiliano Raggi, which features an open-case structure where the light source can be conveniently detached, recharged and reapplied with minimum effort.
For a showcase dedicated to outside living, our new offering, LAGOON, was the ideal choice. A special edition of the outdoor lamp designed by Servomuto, with Pierre Frey fabrics in natural tones, will also be part of the Elle Decor event, which will take place in the beautiful grounds of Palazzo Litta in Milan.
The exhibition will open its doors to the public from Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 April 2022, after the launch event on Wednesday 6 April.
