MSGM Headquarters

Located in an abandoned early 20th-Century blacksmith's workshop in Milan's Porta Romana borough, the space was seriously run-down; however, its crude and post-industrial aesthetic is now its most fascinating and contemporary aspect thanks to a careful work of preservation and reinterpretation.

A large access portal, two distinct areas, an irregular floor plan, walls in plain brickwork, abandoned machinery and suspended pulleys maintain the space's productive spirit but are combined, in an unprecedented layout, to a new cement flooring and deliberately flashy steel and galvanized plate conducts and ventilation systems. The preserved and renewed brickwork is paired with the dove-grey and pink tones of the new irregular partitions, a combination that creates surprising perspectives, such as the fireplace: an original mid-19th-Century Louis Philippe in grey marble specifically imported from the south of France. The great central skylight, the doors and windows have been carefully salvaged, while an unused air shaft has been connected to the private office to be used as a scenographic source of light. The decor is the result of prolonged research: the original 1950s pieces by Friso Kramer come from Flanders, the grey and yellow shelving, the curved wooden chairs, the private office's armchairs, handpicked from galleries in Antwerp and Paris, just like the grand central table, an original Ico Parisi from 1960, imported to Italy from a gallery in Belgium. The ceiling projectors, all from abandoned industrial sites of the Île de France, are paired with lamps of typical Italian design. The beautiful canvases by Nathalie du Pasquier give the finishing touch to this eclectic, refined and contemporary space.
