07/04/2021 - ALPI decorative surfaces in wood veneer to add character to the interiors of Folie Falò, the house in the mountain in Upper Val di Susa designed by SCEG Architetti, an architecture firm based in Turin, founded in 2011 by the Italian-Greek couple Stefano Carera and Eirini Giannakopoulou.
 
A small family apartment owned by the two architects, facing the forest of Claviere, a popular destination for tourists. The layout of just 30 square meters contains a kitchen, a dining room and a bathroom, with beds for six visitors. In this project, the studio SCEG narrates its design approach, in constant balance between functional quality and emotions, tradition and contemporary style, research and interpretation.

The clear protagonist of the setting is ALPI Sottsass Red wood, which like a bonfire (falò) brings warmth and vivacity to the interiors. Its texture triggered by accentuation of the wood grain brings out the bright hue, reflecting the unusual juxtapositions of the language of the designer. The veneer becomes the fil rouge through the various spaces of the house, covering the backrest of the wall bench in the dining zone, the heart of the apartment, as well as the console in the corridor leading to the nighttime area, where the product is also used on the headboards.

A theatrical setting with an alpine atmosphere, intimate and warm like a glowing fire, an ideal location for life in the mountains.
