WHY / WHEN / WHERE & HOW
LEFTOVERDESIGN WORKED SO FAR

9 years ago everything started in Biennale Architettura 2012 with the <A Better World> Collateral Event Greenhouse Talks and Shows conceived and curated by Raffa Guidobono. Beginning 2013 the set-up for the Antonio Marras Accessories F/W collection follow up [acasa] FBR project produced by h+ curated by Beatrice Rossetti, in partnership with Society Limonta, Iittala, Davide Groppi.
In 2015 with Architect Giorgia Cerulli and the Design Hotel Owner, Raffa made the G-Rough Kitchenettes, the ground-floor G-Bar and the G-Rough Hotel Reception in Partnership with Smeg + Gessi + Ivas. In 2015 she joined the Matter of Perception Exhibition hosted in Palazzo Litta curated by DAMn° Magazine with her first stools production in chestnut wood oakwood and #marble.

Same year the Independent Design Festival Operae in Partnership with Coltellerie Berti, then Operae 2016-2017 editions too. From 2016 LEFTOVER joined BASE Milano to make custom made furniture at the guesthouse casaBASE, recipient of the BIG SEE Tourism Award 2020 for the interiors made with Stella Orsini.
Raffa's project DBench
was selected in XX1Triennale over35 with the Duo benches dissemination between Accademia Brera and BASE Milano. In 2018 she proudly started a new collaboration with #TWS with the production of Leftover tailored Table top #TramediPietra Collection.
Shipping worldwide Raffa produces her signature collection of kitchenettes in two workshops between Palermo and Milano and with Genco-Mülling she follows up the manufacturing of  Oakwood Seau à Glace for the soon to be yey* collection, unique objects and accessories for Natural Wine lovers.

Table and Stool Signature Collection in plywood always available on demand. 
New colors Bauwerk lime wash top finishing, now also Oakwood and Chestnutwood structure and/or marble-top. Together with sideboards, low tables, shelves, and the raw kitchenettes iron marble and wood, all the bespoke and limited editions works for renovation including kitchen and bathroom design. 
2021 opens with the news of Calacatta Marble on the Double - Top Table CONSTANCE, now on production alongside the classy Leftover tables and stools with a Coccio Pesto finishing.
2020 made my work such a wonder. The new Cache pots/ Vases SOL, were unveiled in the Exhibition Seminario /EDIT Napoli curated by Domitilla Dardi and Emilia Petruccelli. Palermo 2019, Brass Racks and Tables for the <Mr.>'s Atelier were both selfstanding and wall-hung, and beside several private residencies I was happy to deliver tables and benches to the new Franzina Trattoria in Brixton. 
In 2018 I did the Bar Counter, Seats Tables and Lighting for the Manifesta12HQ at Teatro Garibaldi. With Ignazio Mortellaro and Vito Priolo we set up the Calidarium at the Botanical Garden in Palermo so you can now walk in and browse the botany books in the Library of RadicEterna while seated on Leftover Reading Armchair Tables and Mini Stools near my brass ReadingLamp Sour. In Milano you can check my Interior Design with #tables and chairs at the Restaurant Tapas_de_pescado and lots of bespoke furniture at BASE and guest-house casaBASE too.

In Turin you can find Leftover's furniture at the fab Orso Laboratorio Caffè + Mara dei Boschi Gelato, the outdoor tables at La Drogheria Piazza Vittorio, and the front desk at Mara dei Boschi Gelato in Alba (CN). In Amsterdam, at Locanda Jordaan, the LEFTOVER plywood Table Tops blend perfectly with Mezzoatelier's chairs. Some tailor made furniture can be seen in the restyling of Maison Bergdorf in Interlaken, with the Sour Brass Lamp Ada and the Oakwood Bottle Shelves, a prototype Iron lighting system and new Leather Superflat Cushions as if made for a carriage.
Beside 600sqmt Interiors restyling of the Murano glass showroom Berengo in the Venice Lagoon, last year was the perfect timing for several kitchens and bathroom renovation in private houses located in CinqueTerre, Milano and Palermo, all of them filled with bespoke furniture too, including the new Meridiana shower-trays and lava stone wall-hang washbasins manufactured in Rome and Palermo.
The new-normal Lockdown-Era 2021 already shows, more than ever, the actual need about how to feel better staying at home.
Call me if you want to start. From the balcony onwards.

Under the name SOUR, born to be a Design+NaturalWines store, Raffa Guidobono conceived the ceiling lamp Ra, the free-hand cut shelves, the brass lamp Ada, the knife-holder, the Marble+wood trays, trivets and shower-trays, the Porcelain Sequins Wall covering coated 24K gold manufactured by BottegaNove, the blown glass goblets, the rusty Cachepots and more. 
Conceived for @Turba Lugano as a pop-up temporary store in 2016, the SOUR concept is now a gem for retails, hotels and unexpected venues.
Place Elevation is still the Sour Interiors restyling formula, mixing Vintage find and customized furniture. Stay tuned.
