Matilde apartment, the hyperdecoration of over.design’s house

 

In the heart of Reggio Emilia, ovre.design studio, founded by the architects Giulia Delpiano and Corrado Conti, designed the Matilde apartment, an exclusive space of 65 square meters (which name refers to the great Lady of the Emilian Middle Ages, Matilde di Canossa), a perfect expression of the concept of hyperdecoration.

The building was built in 1700 and was raised during the 1960s. Starting from the drastic demolition work of a load-bearing wall, the architects created an open space living area including a kitchen, lounge and dining room. In this way, it was possible to give priority to the convivial space.

The master bedroom has been designed according to a concept inspired by the hotel industry and is characterized by the headboard of the large velvet bed, specially created for this atmosphere, wired and equipped with a USB port. The night area is completed by a bedroom of smaller dimensions, characterized by decorative solutions.

The bathroom is furnished with exclusive and qualitative products, from Gessi Taps to third-firing tiles with a particular effect of open pores; the shower area deserves a special mention due to its width and its original and creative position.

The apartment’s furniture is all tailor made and all products are are prestigious and qualitative, from the Pivato doors to the Binova kitchen base, embellished with many variants; a judicious use of mirrors, crystal surfaces and distinctive lighting techniques contributes to making the spaces brighter and lighter, multiplying their perception by a play of transparency and reflections.

Finally, the use of color plays a key role in giving vibrancy to the walls, embellished by the wallpaper of strong impact, while the passion for vintage of both designers has succeeded incredibly in furnishing this space with objects and furnishing accessories lived and elegant, full of charm and able to add the depth of the environment of that time.

Thus, Matilde apartment has become a living space as well as a showroom expression of high-quality design.
