Amy Somerville are proud to have taken part in the Palazzio Della Meravigle joint exhibition at the historic Museo Bagatti Vasecchi as part of Milan Design Week 2019.
The pieces launched at the exhibition were created especially for the ‘Sala da Pranzo’ room within the museum and were designed as a response to the room’s dazzling tapestries, geometric marble floor and ornate wooden carvings.
The Museo Bagatti Vasecchi is a historic renaissance style house-museum nestled in the heart of Milan’s fashion quarter. Two brothers, Barons Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi, dedicated themselves to refurbishing their family home and in the late 19th century, collected an extraordinary array of fifteenth and sixteenth century paintings and decorative arts for the interior.
The show was the first of its kind at the museum and encompassed luxury furniture, lighting and soft furnishings from seven international designers.
Five new Amy Somerville furniture designs were launched at Milan Design Week 2019:
Bartleby Credenza: Shown here in natural oiled American Black Walnut with blackened brass details.
