Palermo 2019 was the year of da club house Albaria in Mondello and the debut of Racks and Tables for the <Mr.>'s Atelier, the new Franzina Trattoria in London and several private residencies. In 2018 Raffa did the Bar Counter, Seats Tables and Lighting at the HQ Manifesta12 Teatro Garibaldi and with Ignazio Mortellaro and Vito Priolo she set up the Calidarium at the BotanicalGarden in Palermo, so you can now walk inside and browse Botany books in the Library RadicEterna while seating on her Reading Armchair tables and mini stools + Reading brass #Lamp. In Milano you can check her Interior Design with #Tables and Chairs at the Restaurant Tapas_de_pescado.
Turin you can find Raffa'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 LEFTOVER plywood and Epoxy Resin top tables perfectly blend with Mezzoatelier's chairs + wallpainting. Some tailor made furniture can be seen in the
restyling of Maison Bergdorf in Interlaken and the Kabinett Bergdorf in the Old
City of Bern, with the Sour Brass Lamp Ada and the oakwood Bottle shelves, a prototype Iron lighting system and new Leather
superflat cushions as if were made for a carriage.
Now thinking about the Interiors for a new Design hotel in Sicily. Planning more in team with mates at StudioF manufacturing my Oakwood tables made to measure for the 600 sq mt Interiors restyling of a Murano Glass showroom in the Venice Lagoon.
Nu pieces to be unveiled on October 2nd 2020 at Materia Independent Design Festival with the yey* younger every year brand new @wine_vibes website section about accessories for Natural Wine lovers.
Under the name SOUR a new brand designed by Raffa Guidobono now releases new products. The blown glass goblets, the ceiling lamp Ra, the shelf, the brass lamp Ada, the knife-holder, the trays and trivets and the wallcovering made with 24K gold sequins are just few example of the current production.
as a temporary forever, the SOUR concept is a gem for retails, hotels and
unexpected venues. Place Elevation as Raffa's restyling formula.
