The need to tell the greatness of a journey into the space of an office. This was certainly the main challenge in interior design for this work, which found its natural expression in a language made of light and lightness, of transparencies and white. The choice of materials was therefore simple: plexiglass to obtain the glass effect while keeping costs down and increasing the durability and resistance of the material, emphasizing the volumes, depth and three-dimensionality of the spaces.
Travel agency design
Location: Verbania, Lake Maggiore, Italy
This is the main idea that has also guided the design and engineering of the furnishing elements. The project was crowned by the séparé (a real “cover” of this venue, on which there are the names and references to different locations) and the spectacular strokes of light on the desks.
Because the only plausible solution for this work was that the project itself was, in some way, a journey into the space of life and work.
Valentina Pedretti graduated in Interior Design at Politecnico di Milano in 2006.
After gaining the first work experience in an architecture and design studio, since 2009 she has worked as a freelance with companies and private, independently managing the different tasks assigned. The areas she usually works on are Interior and Exhibition Design.
Today she carries out his professional activity in Italy and in Switzerland, mainly designs hotels, restaurants, boutiques, private homes and exhibition stands. Her most important projects include the stand exhibition for Fiora bath collection at Salone del Mobile of Milan in the 2017 and the design of private villas on Lake Maggiore from 2015 to 2018.
She loves the fact that her work has to do with something as ethereal as powerful: the space. That emptiness that distinguishes every environment: living, domestic, professional, working. Places where objects, furniture and functional surfaces, through the language of design, define their character.
Her way of communicating, full of lines, volumes, measures and signs, is the alphabet with which she writes, in a empty space, the way we will fill it, live it and, finally, we will really say our space.
