In CEO Piero Bisazza’s home in the historic city centre of Alte Vicenza, Italy, a private gallery showcases a collection of photographs by legendary talents such as Helmut Newton and Robert Mapplethorpe.

A masterpiece of mid-century furniture, Harry Bertoia’s previously unreleased Asymmetric Chaise was created using the same process as his welded-steel Side Chair.

This red powder room offers a colourful surprise. A mirrored cabinet above the sink helps to expand the compact space and the wall below is clad in glass back-painted in the same red as homeowner Colomba Fuller’s favourite lipstick. An abstract painting by David Urban is captured in the mirror’s reflection and complements the red wall.
This powder room’s medicine cabinet hides a treasure trove of pretty perfume bottles that pop against a red background. Painting the cabinet interior adds an unexpected element.
