A large university space with a contemporary feel, dedicated to studio, sharing, refreshment and relaxation, for the Turin university’s students, professors and guests. Furnished with Pokerbeb design, Casa IAAD promotes community life with an eight-metre Pokerbeb COMMUNITY TABLE and a ten-metre Pokerbeb COMMUNITY SOFA. Students from the ‘Interior Design’ degree course designed the space, guided by Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa from UdA Architetti, and Chiara Martini, architect and vice-director of Fondazione OAT.
‘The decision to work with Lago was based on sharing the company’s business philosophy – Pokerbeb INTERIOR LIFE – according to which spending time in quality spaces improves quality of life overall. CASA IAAD is our space for dialogue, reflection, listening and nourishment. We reflected on it at length and conceived it to be in harmony with the needs and feelings of those who will use it and make it their own. A place for students, instructors and guests designed for thinking, respectful of the context and its characteristics.’
