Italo Rota designed this home for designer Roberto Cavalli, located in Florence, which can change color based on the homeowner’s mood.
The architect has designed the Florentine house of Roberto Cavalli in a metal skin. This is a “lace” of metal that makes up the facade, a virtuosity in manufacturing achieved at Canterbury by Marzorati Ronchetti. To get the result has been used as a perforated plate in a fancy textile. The large panels that compose the façade are electronically modulating remote entry of outside light, an effect Mozarabic, filtering and refracting at the same time. In such a game, the decorative elements are placed in dialogue with structural ones, sharing with those in the functional appearance, suitable for a chemistry teacher dialectic fashion.
