Cristina Celestino is a good example of a woman who decided to take the risky step of creating her own business and succeeded. Having been a good example of a woman who’s been in contact with the area of Architecture all her life and, therefore, with design as well, it would be no surprise that she took these areas by storm in Milan city.
Cristina Celestino was born in Pordenone in 1980, and as she grew she began giving her very first steps in the Architecture industry. After graduating from Iuav in Venice in that very same are and having some past working experiences in the middle, she would end up giving a huge step in 2009.
This step would have her moving to Milan city where she would settle and create her own company Attico Design in 2010. The main basis for the products that the company of Cristina Celestino produces has to do with the fact that she is deeply knowledgeable in regards to what moved the great twentieth-century masters of Italian design.
We can definitely detect a couple of traditional inspirations in may of her works, as well as a bot of a touch of irony, colour and a couple of unexpected geometrical forms to modern design projects. As a matter of fact, Cristina Celestino has admitted to being a firm collector of Italian design masterpieces. She’s playful in every challenge she takes on which helps in making her results stand out.
Cristina is also notable for reinterpreting historical/classical concepts. One of the most recent examples we can point to is The Pink Closet. In this one, she took the Palazzo Avino hotel, a building dating all the way back to the twelfth century and revamped a store in it with a soft and very feminine atmosphere.
When it comes to furniture we can definitely detect Cristina Celestino‘s liking for geometry, unique shapes, varied colours and classical elements from certain decades. In this regard, the highlight goes to her collaboration with FENDI, first presented at Design Miami 2016, The Happy Room. It was a display consisting of 12 different furniture objects, allusive to the 50s style in a very tasteful mix of materials and patterns.
