Opening Boffi | De Padova Studio Melbourne
Boffi | De Padova Studio Melbourne opens in Collingwood. Collingwood has a distinct Melbourne feel, surrounded by restaurants, bars, design studios and artgalleries, which presented an opportunity for the Boffi | De Padova to be located in an area that had a strong cultural influence within Melbourne.
Originally introduced to Australia by Interior Architect, Edwina Withers, who established Boffi Studio Sydney in 2013, the interest in the brand has gained such momentum that the time is now right for a stand-alone Melbourne showroom.
Recently opened, the Studio is situated in a former gospel hall that has a unique sense of scale, accentuated by the soaring pressed metal ceilings and original architectural details. The space has been transformed to give the opportunity to exhibit the brand’s four distinct product ranges: Boffi kitchens, bathrooms and systems; De Padova furniture; MA/U Studio systems and furniture and the recently acquired ADL, specialized in partition systems.
Roberto Gavazzi, Boffi | De Padova CEO says: “We are proud to partner with Edwina and launch our second dedicated Boffi Studio in Australia. Through the people I have met during my time in Australia, I can see that Melbourne is a place where design and innovation is deeply understood and so we anticipate a great meeting of creative minds.”
“It is a great privilege for us to display the De Padova and MA/U furniture collections alongside our Boffi range as they complete the story. Boffi, De Padova and MA/U are, indeed, a true marriage of aesthetics and philosophy. The three brands are passionate about absolute quality and longevity paired with innovative, contemporary design thinking. They are a visual complement and it allows us to talk to our clients in a more holistic way”, says Edwina Withers, Director Boffi Studio Sydney and Boffi Studio Melbourne.
