Pierluigi Molteni's Plug-In House Location: Bologna, Italy Size/Type: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom modular home Years lived in: 1 month (September 11 - October 3, 2009) At the Cersaie exhibition in Bologna this past October, we had the chance to tour a mod Italian home built for the show. The Plug-In House, designed by Italian architect Pierluigi Molteni in collaboration with Alessia Curella and Sophie Berianidze, is a modular home that's centered on a hallway, or "spine," from which rooms branch off. It seemed like we couldn't turn a corner without finding something out of the ordinary.
Muzzarelli, Lago, and Desalto. We found our favorite pieces in the bedroom: a bed that appears to float above the floor and a wooden crib with outer storage pockets and a fabric mosquito net. The red and black bathroom tile was aso eye-catching, as were the triangular wall-mounted bookshelves.
