Oscar Piccolo’s London Home Is a Perfect Reflection of His Creative Approach
The first time we saw photos of Sicilian-born, London-based designer Oscar Piccolo‘s home, featured on The Modern House, we had to chuckle — it’s not every day you find a guy whose name means “small” in his native Italian living in a cozy one-room flat in London. But the second time we saw it featured, on Architectural Digest’s Clever site last week, where our very own writer Zoe Sessums described how Piccolo has thoughtfully transformed the space over the past three years, we began to notice all the ways in which his home suits him perfectly in more than just name. The large white shapes, for example, are vestiges from past photo shoots he’s done with Charlotte Taylor, his partner in Dello Studio, while his Cappello lamp and Dello’s Onda chair play starring roles in the decor; the vases that factor so heavily into his beloved 3-D renderings have an actual 3-D equivalent in his extensive collection of vases and vase-themed objects. And the shot of his bed below even looks somehow like one of his digital illustrations. Check out a preview from Clever’s story below, then follow this link to see more images and read Zoe’s story.
