Luigi Caccia Dominioni:a new Perspective

Video, Milan, 09.2018

To celebrate the recent acquisition by B&B Italia of the Azucena brand and the design work of architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni, PIN–UP visited some of the architect’s most impressive Milanese buildings where we record a video with Caccia Dominioni’s most iconic design pieces. From the winding hallways and graphic mosaic floors of the Teatro Filodrammatici (1967) to the mysterious corridors and swirling mosaics of the Corso Italia apartment complex (1957–64, both conceived together with the artist Francesco Somaini), not to mention his own home and studio at Piazza Sant’Ambrogio 16 (1949–53), these spaces are emblematic of Caccia Dominioni’s unusual talent for effortlessly marrying thoughtful Classicism with delightful innovation. By photographing them with the help of the latest drone technology, PIN–UP provides something that the late architect always very much appreciated — a new perspective.
