And Now, the Planet's Best, Most Unlivable Industrial Home

New, 2 comments

Converted from a 1940s sock factory, this peak-industrial hideout in northern Italy was at one point the office of Italian designer and sculptor Vicenzo de Cotiis, a master of the "monastery-meets-laboratory approach" to interior architecture, according to T Magazine, which recently published the above photo online. It's unclear what the space is used for now, but it sure seems like a difficult place to take shelter unless one can sustain only on a few pieces of (admittedly wonderful) vintage chairs and de Cotiis-designed furniture. Compared to some other examples of industrial conversions, the space looks proudly untransformed—for one, the giant old stains on the concrete walls feel super artful—like murals.
