Why is Stockholm a source of inspiration in my design? Stockholm has a strong character when it comes to design and fashion. People here do their own thing. They dress as they feel. I don’t see young people being slaves of designers or victims of the fashion system. Each person has their own style. Then it becomes interesting even for us designers and eye catching.
Stockholm also inspires me when it comes to music and nature. The respect the Stockholmers have for nature is unbelievable for us in Italy. Tthe nature rules in the city, not the buildings.
I bought an apartment in one of the areas I love the most; Rörstrandsgatan. It is not a coincidence that many italians live here. We love beautiful things, beautiful people, design, good food and amazing coffee. This area has amongst the best restaurants in the city and absolutely the best coffee place. I love the number of museums, libraries and cafés and restaurants were they play jazz and live music. Stockholm is a lively and happy city were sometimes weather becomes hostile. But must of the time its mesmerizingly beautiufl.
While rebuilding the apartment I thought about light and space. The need of light even during the cold winters and the need of open spaces… the need of walking around areas without having to open doors. I like that. it´s a work space, a social place and at same time private. A small home/studio were I can stay during my days in Stockholm.
