A Metallic Melting Pot at Milan’s Erastudio Apartment Gallery
Tucked away within a Milanese palazzo, at the heart of the Brera art district, the two intimate spaces of Erastudio Apartment Gallery feature exposed walls and polished floors, bringing a feeling of new extravagance to the rawness of the architecture’s history. Gallery founder and architect Patrizia Tenti’s approach to the studio’s interior reflects the essence of the unique art and design pieces she curates—a marriage of the tactile qualities of the past and the cutting edge refinement of contemporary technologies. “Unusual Alloys” embodies this marriage, both in the metallic amalgamations of the works on display, and in its combination of vintage and recent objects.

Together, the works’ metallic combinations make for a gilded and extravagant exhibition, where mysterious elemental reactions are balanced by the precision of craftsmanship and the rules of geometry.
