Curvaceous Designs from Pianoprimo in Milan

January 23, 2015

These curvy glass designs and full-figured baskets stopped us in our tracks on a recent visit to Garde in LA.  They’re the work of Italian interior designers Fabio Cocchi and Luigi Rotta of Pianoprimo, who have been creating elegantly playful household staples since the early nineties. Garde owners Scotti Sitz and John Davidson discovered the duo at last fall’s Maison et Objet and have just introduced the collection to the US. Anderson says, “We love that the designs look classic but very original at the same time. Besides being beautiful to look at, they can all be put to everyday use.”
