The title is at the very heart of the vision of Paolo Pallucco, a “furniture designer” who, with his companion Mireille Rivier, and with some of the most innovative contemporary international designers such as Rei Kawakubo, created signature designs in furniture in the 80s and 90s. As someone always ready to break the barriers, he was the promoter of memorable productions, anticipating what would become the practice of using abandoned spaces in the city, such as the former slaughterhouse of Milan during the Salone del Mobile. A fascinating story, of lights and shadows, told by the protagonists themselves.
In 1980 Paolo Pallucco founded a furniture and accessory company that bore his name. His products represent new concepts, and have a new aesthetic language. He undertook a path in which the search of functionality, technical innovation and study of shapes evolved hand in hand. His non-conformist approach to design and the memorable exhibitions in the ex Slaughterhouse of Milan during the 1988-1989 editions of the Furniture Fair have left a significant mark both because of the quality and for the staging of the products.
