The design polymath invites us into her objet d’art-filled Milanese apartment

From a magnificent mosaic table by Giò Ponti to personalized Lawrence Weiner writings on the wall, the cabinet of collectible curiosities that is the home of Carlotta de Bevilacqua sits high above Milan’s stylish streets, overlooking the Duomo.

An architect, designer, professor and vice president of pioneering Italian lighting behemoth Artemide, de Bevilacqua is a leading voice in the design industry and an energetic polymath—facts made evident by the impeccably eclectic loft she shares with her husband, Artemide founder Ernesto Gismondi, and countless cats and dogs.
