Bonjour Milàn: Experimental Furniture by Atelier Biagetti
View Slideshow

Wanting to pay homage to their hometown of Milan, Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari created a collection of experimental furniture and lighting called Bonjour Milàn. The husband, designer Biagetti, and wife, painter Baldassari, make up Atelier Biagetti and their collection of handmade pieces combine a variety of contrasting concepts, like “mixing old and new, archeology and space debris, sophisticated equipment and geographical cross sections.”
