, to furnish the interior spaces of the Stauffer Center for Strings in the heart of Cremona, Italy. The first international music center for higher education, research, composition, production, management and innovation, entirely dedicated to stringed instruments.
With the desire to reconcile beauty, technology and impact, Pininfarina intended to respect the stylistic peculiarities of the historic building, reinterpreting them to breathe new life into the complex, bringing it into a contemporary dimension.
The design choices combine functional needs with an aesthetic dimension that recalls the world of stringed instruments, while ensuring the highest levels of comfort and perceived well-being. The project thus gives shape to environments capable of welcoming and hosting cultural and educational activities, responding to the needs of interaction, socialization and exchange of the young and extraordinary talents who will inhabit the spaces of the Center.
is a simple and functional floor-standing coat rack, with balanced and organic shapes, which brings us back to the typical design of the Seventies. Cylindrical self-supporting structure made of powder coated steel from which five tubular emerge in different heights. Discs made of turned and painted solid wood screwed to the structure by means of ABS supports that create a second hook. Stable, sturdy and versatile, this simple object of daily use is suitable to be inserted in any environment.
