Erastudio & Apartment-Gallery was born in 2010 from the experience and professionalism of Architect Patrizia Tenti, founder of the gallery.
The philosophy of Erastudio – “design as architecture” – transpires from the structure of its two spaces in the historical building of Via Palermo 5 in Milan. The gallery offices are located in an apartment on the third floor while the gallery itself is located in the “ex former stables” in the courtyard of the building. Each space is restored according to the concept “less is more”. As well, the name “Erastudio & Apartment” recalls the influences of a past atmosphere where “design works” are contextualized.
The gallery focuses exclusively on unique pieces, prototypes, artist’s proofs, limited editions and special projects for its clients from Italian and international architecture and historical masters like Ettore Sottsass Jr., Nanda Vigo, Carlo Scarpa, Mario Bellini, Napoleone Martinuzzi, Piero Fornasetti and Osvaldo Borsani as well as young designers. Erastudio works in between architecture and site-specific design providing consultancy and assistance to the adaptation and interaction of the pieces in a peculiar environment.
This has given rise to unique collaborations with artists & architects such as Gaetano Pesce (in 2012 presented at Design Miami/ as a tribute to the American Presidential Election the unique piece America Table) Nanda Vigo and designers such as Riccardo Goti and Indian Gunjan Gupta for the realization of special projects designed exclusively for the gallery. Among this path the concept of “design work” approaches the concept of “art work”.
Since 2012 Erastudio & Apartment has been accredited in the best fairs in the world of collectible design.
