Boffi blows out ninety candles

To celebrate nine decades of adventures in an unforgettable evening, Boffi recently set a spectacular event at the late Baroque Rotonda della Besana, the perfect backdrop for an evening that was a perfect fusion of design, history and art.

Piero Lissoni's Novanta kitchen took centre stage in the architecture, under the octagonal dome of the former church, with an impressive multimedia setup.

Scenes from the kitchen of the film "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" paid homage to the visionary British director Peter Greenaway and offered a sophisticated example of convivial scenography in the spaces of an eclectic extraordinary kitchen set up by Paola Moretti.

In an atmosphere that was both conceptual and sensual, inspired by the genre of still life and the interplay of cross-pollinations and contrasts, the real and the virtual world came together, as well as tradition and design, beauty and culture, solemnity and transgression, the mundane and the iconic.

The magic extended outdoors, where the historic architecture was bathed in the warm glow of a multitude of candles and embraced by soft, swaying plants, with cascades of greenery adorning the loggia.

'These 90 years represent a significant milestone, not easily achieved without, in addition to solid roots steeped in history, the ever-present and insatiable desire to be visionaries and pioneers in a successful business venture. It goes beyond merely being able to see the potential of a product on a technical and functional level. Above all, it's about observing how this very product – whether it is a kitchen, a bathroom, an object for the living room, or a walk-in closet – manages to impart a sense of well-being and enhanced quality to the domestic lives of those enamoured with our style, becoming the embodiment of a sophisticated and elegant way of living. We celebrate these 90 years, which carry the flavour of artisanal traditions, an appetite for research, technological and design innovation, experimentation and attention to detail. Above all, we celebrate it with our people, from our ambassadors and protagonists worldwide, starting from our factories and the factories of our esteemed partners, all the way to our design spaces. These spaces continually contribute, with great passion, to make Boffi and its contemporary design home project a symbol of Italian excellence desired all over the world,' says Roberto Gavazzi, CEO and President.
