In December opened to the public the Feltrinelli Porta Volta complex, the first building in Italy by the firm Herzog & de Meuron that plays an important role in a strategic area of Milan that has been undergoing a far-reaching process of urban regeneration in recent years. For this important project, UniFor, which is part of the Molteni Group, provided the furnishings and partition systems for the three upper floors, including both series products and custom works conceived specifically for the unique spaces by Studio Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with Coima Image.

The project includes two twin buildings, headquarters of the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation and the offices of Microsoft Italia, and a large public green area with meeting points, bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways. The buildings were inspired by the simplicity and impressive scale of the structures that characterize Milan’s historic architectural landscape, including the Ospedale Maggiore, the Rotonda della Besana, the Lazzaretto, and the Sforzesco Castle.

The two floors devoted to offices are defined by full-height partition walls adapted to the project specifications, with structure in natural-finish aluminum fixed at the ceiling and glazed paneling inserted in guides concealed in the raised flooring.

The conference rooms and the executive offices are furnished with Naòs System tables and Naòs wall-mounted bookcases. The task areas, offices, meeting rooms, and waiting/lounge areas are furnished with Vitra chairs and sofas, while the break areas are equipped with Dada kitchens with top and backsplash in Corian.

The reading room at the top floor has been furnished exclusively with custom works designed by the architects to complement the forms and geometries of the building. The library tables, also designed specifically for the space, feature frames in painted steel and aluminum, tops in oak, stained in matte black, and lamps by Artemide.
