Interiors Crush: Recycled Home in Milan

This house in Milan’s lively Isola district is filled with unique pieces crafted out of raw materials by the talented industrial designer Costanza Algranti. Costanza scores the streets of Milan in search for all kind of stuff: benches, gutters, barrels and metal sheets. She selects them thinking about what they might become. In her laboratory she works these materials to create new, fresh and unconventional furnishings: lamps, mirrors, chairs, kitchens. The result might not be everybody taste but I admire Costanza`s ability to transform raw, discarded things into treasure pieces which bring within numerous traces of what they were.
