The project for the IDeA FIMIT Headquarters wants this highly charming location to be furnished with contemporary elements that, despite the hi-tech features, don’t lose their sobriety and elegance. Devoto helped out with the design, engineering, production and installation of elements that differ one from the other for geometry and raw material.
In the foyer, guests are welcomed by a sculptural object – the reception desk in solid oak wood and double curve. This desk has a suggestive outfit and a highly technological identity, with particular attention to ergonomics: inside of it, there is a fully-equipped workstation for the support to the reception and flow management activities.
The linear cabinets, designed with a tridimensional and two-coloured game between lacquered elements and oak wood, stand around the intradoses and match the wall painting.
From an iconic point of view, it is necessary to mention the meeting room, where the surface of the floor turns around and goes vertically upwards till it becomes a ribbon that encircles the conference table. This table, entirely double-curved and with asymmetric extra-clear wooden supports, was finished with milk-white Gel-coat.
Finally, the wall cladding alternates with brownish brass elements that interrupts its continuity and generates a tone-on-tone texture.
