Shiro Studio: Enzo Ferrari House

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Taking their name from the Japanese word for “white”, Shiro Studio epitomises the appealing clarity of unsullied design. Their interior for the newly opened Enzo Ferrari House (a permanent exhibition inside the car-makers’ 19th century home) is a beautiful thing: taking aesthetic cues from the pages of a book it’s open, fluid construction allows visitors to read through chapters of Ferrari’s life. The studio was founded by Andrea Morgante, a man blessed with the ability to translate his clean-but-curious ethos from big buildings to small products – these lunar crater marble dishes and porous bone tables will do wonders for anyone who’s fed up with Ikea.
