Onieva, from Spain, has worked for a Naval Architecture Studio as an Interior Designer of Yatch and Luxury Boats.

Their curricular project pays homage to Frankie Morello, a still little known Fashion Brand in the Home Collection scenario. The project, the design of a Penthouse in the city of Milano, is inspired by the Brand’s typical stylistic codes: a shameless yet refined balance of opposites where details become distinctive features.
Frankie Morello Maison is first of all a narration: a love story between a “rigid” Swedish architect and a “Mediterranean” fashion photographer from Sicily who decide to move in together. Passion, a clash of different styles and personalities, which result in a perfect balance between two personal views of modernity. The sharp, geometric aspects of architectural design have been smoothed by the use of natural elements and lively colours. The shapes and fabrics used for furnishings reflect Frankie Morello’s unique eclecticism, as well as the Brand’s provocative, ironic vision of Fashion. The participants’ young, versatile style is rendered through functionality and indefinable boundaries, thus creating a concept for a future Home Collection.
