DESIGN : Alessandro Bombaci
CLIENT : PostOffice
“A meeting point for people, colours, flavours, and lives where good food meets design”. This is how PosOfficeStation, a new multifunctional hub on the east side of Milan has been described by the press.
The design has been curated by Alessandro Bombaci with very fluid and extensive use of the WOOD-SKIN surfaces, different shapes and materials always in continuous dialogue with the urban heritage of the area and its possible present-future.
This project widens WOOD-SKIN’s possibilities by bringing the technology on the outside among the elite of materials suitable for facade use. The chosen material is a tough aluminium composite paired with the ultra-flexible WOOD-SKIN® technology.
The inside of the cafè is in continuity with the organic shapes of the exterior, the free-form tessellated shape is achieved by creative use of Mesh Sheets in a variety of finishes. The brushed metal finish of the suspended ceiling and the glossy black laminate of the counter help creating a dynamic effect that brings the visitor to a new vibrant and cosy space.
