Interior designer Andrea Castrignano has selected Iam Design and Arteferro products for an episode of his television programme «cambio casa, cambio vita!»

(“changing my home, changing my life!”), relating to a restoration project for a luxurious penthouse overlooking the Duomo di Milano. The phases of the renovation and furnishing were first broadcast on la5, Wednesday 22 June 2016 at 11 pm, in the reality show dedicated to interior design «cambio casa, cambio vita!» (“changing my home, changing my life!”).

At the centre of the scene is a custom-made spiral staircase by IAM Design that connects the living room of the apartment to the terrace on the upper floor, previously accessible only from the condominium staircase. Moreover, a cover for the chimney hood was created with the Vertical Metals system by Arteferro. All the structures supplied were painted with the colour Shadow gray, RAL 7022.

Some of the scenes of the television programme were carried out in the new showroom of the plants in Malo (Vicenza) and saw Architect Massimo Stecchi, Contract Manager of Ind.i.a. Spa., as the protagonist of the company.

The staircase

Starting from the Glasstree stainless steel and glass model by IAM Design, it was decided to use iron both for the structural elements of the staircase and for the treads, with the exception of the last 4 steps and the landing, for which laminated, tempered, non-slip, 25.52 mm thick glass was used, in order to allow the light coming from the terrace to illuminate the room below. The handrail was made from sheet metal and calendered specifically to follow the sinuosity of the staircase.

The chimney hood

The chimney hood was covered with «Marte», one of the 12 elements of the Vertical Metals line by Arteferro. This composition is characterised by the combination of hexagonal geometric elements in iron, developed in both two and three dimensions.

The transmission

Cambio casa, cambio vita! is a television programme that airs on La5 in which interior designer Andrea Castrignano transforms anonymous and poorly furnished homes into dream homes in which the redesign of spaces, the research and use of innovative materials, the careful use of colour create a “tailor-made” home that is an expression of the personality of the people living in it.
