Can you live immersed in nature without sacrificing design and quality? The answer lies in FRAME, a mid-sized (130 sq m) two-storey house with a double-height living room, a studio area, a dining and kitchen area, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large terrace.
It is entirely furnished by Zanotta, which provided the Flamingo sofa designed by Damian Williamson in 2017, the Tweed table by Garcia Cumini (2017), the June chairs by Frank Rettenbacker (2016), the Sciangai coat rack by De Pas, D’Urbino, Lomazzi (1973), the Mezzadro stools by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1957), Ido by Frank Rettenbacker (2016) and Sgabillo by Max Bill (1950).
But what makes this house so special? The house was created using a simple and innovative industrial process. The various components are assembled on-site, completely dry, without further processes. LeapHome, created by LEAPfactory (founded by architects Stefano Testa and Luca Gentilcore), is an integrated product that does not distinguish between load-bearing structures, casings, fittings, finishes and furniture. It is a ‘turnkey’ home that can be rapidly and easily assembled. Another major advantage is the absence of a building site, since on-site work is reduced and can be carried out by unskilled workers.
FRAME can be visited in Lissone (Monza and Brianza province) in Cleaf’s outdoor area. Cleaf fully embraced the project’s philosophy and supported the construction of LeapHome, which is ideal for the application of the Brianza company’s surfaces. Four Cleaf products are used, making their very first debut: Piombo, which thanks to the use of innovative acrylic reins is a matt surface that is anti-fingerprint, soft to the touch and reflects minimum light. Piombo HM01 in the melamine panel version, used for the furniture, containers and doors. Nadir FB14 in the melamine panel version covers the services area and kitchen block. Nadir FA68 is used for walls and ceilings and finally Ecopelle FB45 is used for the bathrooms.
