Because of a lack of natural light in the atrium’s loft, de Giulio improvised new lighting techniques and created distinctive fixtures for the Studio.
Within the Studio, which is bathed in neutrals, artwork by children in collaboration with Chicago-area nonprofit Have Dreams adds splashes of bright color.
Used throughout the Studio, European white oak creates a unified flow while patterns change from one vignette to another to artfully delineate space.
De Giulio’s goal to inspire visitors to reimagine what a kitchen can be is apparent in the Viking vignette’s antique table console with German silver and silicon bronze detail.
Many one-of-a-kind artisan pieces, including lighting fixtures, tables, sinks and cabinetry finishes were designed specifically for the project.
