1. The design.

Your entry into the world of design coincides with the launch of the Monica Armani brand. The year is 1998. The focus is on Progetto 1, since 2006 in the catalog of B. & B Italia. “It was the table that I’ve always dreamed of, but has not yet been designed.” Created for a private customer, the table marks the beginning of an organization system for the kitchen with shelves, table tops and chairs, and later becomes extends and includes the garden (with tables and benches), the bathroom, also computer desks and coffee tables.

2. The team. “The design is in our family and the studio – part of the house. Luka, my husband and I work together. With us are our children Marcelo and Mariana. Work and family life are intertwined. We quarrel and correct one another. When it comes to technology, the law is usually on Luke’s side, but when it comes to details, I win. ”And breaks to regain strength? The time with the children. But also our little escapes to North Africa in search of endless horizons and absolute silence. “

3. Your idea for a bath. I like the idea of ​​a black bath. That was my philosophy when developing the system Pianura for Boffi. Wood paneling, backlit shelves, hanging sink, a couple of inches from the wall and such a feeling of floating objects. A wall mirror and cupboards complete the interior.

4. Your favorite room. “The living room, thanks to the wonderful view of the courtyard and the green. We live on the ground floor of a small building that we designed a few years ago. When I want to relax, I sit on the famous Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen. I also turn on Davide Groppi’s Goodmorningchina table lamp – a thin stand and a giant balloon made of pink paper. Magical effect. “

Simple open shelves, vertical elements covered with fabric. Three different lengths of shelves. The connection offers many possibilities for combinations. And one more detail, no need for mounting next to the wall.

6. The good teachers. My father is undoubtedly in the first place. An architect who has had many projects and always with a great deal of finesse. We worked together for ten years. I owe it my attention to detail and the belief that it is never so small to be overlooked. Also the belief that time makes ideas clearer. Among the greatest names in design – the eternal American couple Charles and Ray Eames. A piece of furniture that is iconic for you, the Eames lounge chair. “I wish I had designed it,” she says with a smile.

7. The art of hospitality. “When we invite guests to dinner, I cover the table with a dark gray linen tablecloth and lace in the middle. Chinese porcelain dishes, silver or steel cutlery from Muji and large glasses for water and wine. I also use ivy to decorate the napkins, candles, and glass cake stands that I’ve been collecting for years. I can’t resist it. Like a new pair of shoes with breathtaking high heels.

In these colors I designed a new porcelain stoneware collection for Mutina. Her name is Bark and is reminiscent of wood bark. When choosing fabrics, Monica is always looking for a balance between material and purism. “I love the linen, but also the felt I used for the upholstery of the WGS stool for Galloti & Radice experimented.
