In its July issue, AD magazine again collects all the best interiors and design achievements. Famous people - in this issue the story of Alexander and Irina Gafina, who again became city dwellers.
From a country house, they moved to an apartment in the center of Moscow. Not only the owners are happy with the move. The apartment has become a center of attraction for their many Moscow friends. Guests are so relaxed that they ask permission to take a nap in an armchair or sofa. The Gafins showed AD a new apartment, and Irina told how she independently coped with the role of an architect and designer.
From the designers for the story, they chose a very scandalously famous Frenchman. Ora Ito's career began after he posted on his website 3D models of things he invented under the brands Louis Vuitton, Apple, Nike and Bic. The copyright holders of the trademarks did not appreciate the joke and went to court, but while the red tape was going on, the defendant in the case became so famous that it was already stupid to sue him. So, as a result of a simple PR campaign, Ito has become one of the most sought-after designers and now collaborates with a dozen well-known brands - already on legal grounds. Especially for AD, Ito opens the doors of his apartment in the Parisian Marais quarter, which looks no less eloquent than a solo exhibition. Without a shadow of false modesty, he almost completely furnished it with his own efforts and constantly renews the "exposition".
And as a shopping guide, AD chose the "great-grandfather of Italian design" Gaetano Pesce. At seventy-five, he perfectly tolerates transatlantic flights and presents new pieces of his own design at each salon. Pesce walked with the AD through the exhibits of the Tortona area during the Milan Furniture Show and discovered decay, decay and a couple of real treasures.
