Politecnico di Milano Spazio Mostre Guido Nardi Milano, 2013

On occasion of the Honorary Degree in Architecture conferred by the Politecnico di Milano on the architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, an exhibition was held with projects by the Portuguese master.

In addition to five works illustrated through sketches and maquettes, the itinerary included photographs specially made for the exhibition by Marco Introini, as well as a tribute to the photographer Gabriele Basilico, with some of his photographs displayed adjacent to drawings by Siza Vieira. Gabriele Basilico worked with UniFor for many years. In the early 1980s he began collaborating with the company on important exhibitions and a number of publications. Their joint encounter with Siza Vieira took place more recently, toward the end of the 1990s, on occasion of the large anthological review devoted to the architect, hosted in the Palladian Basilica in Vicenza. This experience led to the creation of the Régua table and chair, designed and manufactured precisely for that exhibition and also used for this latest event.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
