Let’s start from genius loci: Villa K is a dwelling in the Italian hills of Langa and Barolo. Its restyling and refurbishment pays a tribute to the surrounding landscape.
The project by Alvisi Kirimoto, in perfect harmony with the pre-existing building, preserves the old volumes and designs a layout that perfectly connects the indoor with the outdoor.
Devoto Design manufactured the fixed and loose furniture, paying the highest attention to the detail: from the large tables (about 4 metres long) made of oak and teak wood slats, to the wardrobe accessories made of cypress wood (a natural moth prevention). All the ironmongery and accessories of the furniture were custom-designed for this project, to create again the right harmony with the environment.
Among the materials we used the wood prevails, especially oak, together with solid surface (Corian®) and iron.
