piero lissoni : old + new

its all about italian design today because this morning, i went to a breakfast at dzine in honor of piero lissoni who was in san francisco for the week.  he is a talented and funny man, not to mention handsome with a strong aesthetic that is clear throughout his body of work.  piero lissoni prides himself in controlling the entire design process by being an architect, interior designer, furniture designer, industrial designer, stylist and graphic designer as well as the creative director and chief designer at boffi and living divini.  he is probably most recognized for his upholstered pieces [available here] but below are images of two residential projects where i appreciate how he has handled or rather, made the contrast between the old and the new architecture.
