The Villa Necchi Campiglio residence, located in the center of Milan and owned by FAI since 2001, was designed in the early 1930s by the well known Italian architect Piero Portaluppi and represents, with its architectural style, one of the symbolic residences of the time for luxury and modernity.
The structure of the spaces and the style of the furnishings are the sign of a project that reveals a spirit of new age and technical research in any detail.
As the handle designed by Portaluppi himself in 1933 that still now furnishes the interiors of the house . The same handle inspired the creativity of Mandelli1953 who proposed a reinterpretation with the Capsule Collection PP33, a complete system of handles related to the original 1933 project, but which differs not only in design but also in its technological and performing soul.
Italian architect and urban planner, architect and academic, Piero Portaluppi was a free, ironic genius who was able to interpret and manage the trends of his time with elegance and style.
Milan, his birthplace, keeps the mark of that recognisable architecture that brings to a very personal taste and open to new types of modernism, unusual for those times.
Not only an architect, Portaluppi was also a brilliant designer and draftsman.
Among the objects of interest, the handle made in 1933 comes out, which today still furnishes the headquarters of the homonymous foundation in Milan and the Villa Necchi Campiglio.
To homage his person and his priceless production, Mandelli1953 wanted to dedicate the PP33 collection, an exclusive re edition of the historic handle from 1933.
Related to the unique and inimitable style of the time, PP33 has been valorized as a contemporary piece of furniture with excellent and performant techniques.
