Industrial designer Samer Alameen has chosen one of the liveliest quarters in Milan for his residence, which boasts the dream layout he always had in mind for his home. Located on the top floor of a building that preserves its original features, this home, studio and gallery is flooded with natural light and a large terrace and has quickly become his headquarters.
Throughout the home, all of Samer’s furniture designs fill the domestic setting very naturally, almost as if the space had been specifically created for them. Some of the pieces express a slightly surreal irony, such as the Ego mirror. Others, like the Light-and-Seek floor lamp – included on The New York Times’ list of the 10 most interesting lamps at Salone del Mobile 2016 – reveal a more conceptual nature. Modularity and scalability are essential to the syntax of the designer, who likes to propose a broader view – and Samer’s own home is undoubtedly in this mode.
