In Interiors: The Lost City of Pompeii

Pompeii at ‘Achille Salvagni Atelier’

In a new London exhibition focusing on the histories of Rome, Achille Salvagni (architect/designer), recognized for his work with Roman themes explores Pompeii – the lost city. The exhibition is entirely an effort on furnitures and he evokes colours found in the architectural surroundings of Italy’s ancient city into his creations. The colours were particularly of a demure shade of earthy reds and blues, amongst others and he also incorporated into his interiors the lost town’s history and the slim lines of the fresco (a kind of mural painting) on the monument, ‘Tomb of the Diver’.

Everything at the atelier is handmade in Rome.
