Luigi Caccia Dominioni (1913 – 2016) was an Italian architect and furniture designer, in 1947 he co-founded “Azucena”, a company specialised in producing handmade design objects and furniture. Dominioni designed many buildings in Milan, including the internal restructuring of the Biblioteca and the Pinacoteca Ambrosian and the Parc Saint Roman, a skyscraper in Monaco.
The characteristic issue of the Caccia Dominioni’s interior in Milan is the green colour which is repeated in the decoration of walls and floor in major parts of the space. The chosen colour symbolises tranquility and silence. One of the main ideas was to create an isolated space, a way to escape the busy exterior. To stress this effect he created several private spaces within its irregular, rounded corners. The dining room is made a lot higher to give it a richer outcome.
