Representing the integration of two previously separate companies, Italy-based Boffi | DePadova continues to bring the best in interior design to Australian soil. Following the success of its Darlinghurst showroom, the design studio has opened a second space in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills. It’s located in a historic building on the corner of Chalmers Street, with major frontage and a combination of stunning windows… and that’s just the outside. To enter this domain is to behold a glorious split-level space with tall ceilings, sculpted concrete columns, neutral-toned walls, and a selection of downright luxurious home furnishings and fittings.
True to its Italian roots, Boffi | DePadova employs timeless expertise whilst constantly adapting to emerging trends and innovations. The Boffi name dates all the way back to 1934, staying the course for decades before reaching new heights in 1980 under the artistic direction of Piero Lissoni. A vital cultural force ever since, the brand both informs and absorbs modern society’s ever-changing thirst for new forms of expression, material, aesthetic, and design. When Boffi acquired furniture masters DePadova in 2015, a new chapter unfolded in what was already a robust and distinguished legacy.
With the opening of its new showroom in Surry Hills, yet another new chapter unfolds. And what a showroom it is. Spread across two levels, it features Boffi kitchens, bathrooms, and systems, and exemplary DePadova furniture. In addition, one can expect ADL doors and partitions, MA/U Studio systems, Salvatori and Domenico Mori tiles and other surfaces, and the newly launched Time & Style ēdition, which finds Boffi | DePadova incorporating Japanese craftsmanship.
As guests migrate from one area to the next, they’ll discover jaw-dropping modes of interior expression. That includes Boffi’s K14 Kitchen by Norbert Wangen, which imparts pure Italian craftsmanship through its combination of grey stone and matte stainless steel base. Or consider the XILA kitchen by Luigi Massoni, a modern system of solid timber and ribbed texture that adapts to each individual user. No less distinctive or inspiring are functional decor-boosters such as the iconic Ishi coffee table by Nendo or the Elementi Lamp by Elisa Ossino. These are but a few examples of the awesomeness lying in wait.
“It is a great privilege for us to display the Boffi and DePadova ranges side by side in a space that celebrates the everlasting prominence of Boffi | DePadova,” said Edwina Withers, Director of Boffi Studio Sydney and Boffi Studio Melbourne. “The new Sydney showroom is a compelling space that we have thoughtfully curated to offer an engaging experience and an insight into the continuous evolution of this historic brand and its product range.”
Executed with purpose, the new Boffi | DePadova showroom delivers a masterful sum of its parts. Each section stands completely on its own but also feeds into a cohesive overall atmosphere, which generates a harmonious interplay between the various products, systems, and furnishings. More than the evolution of the Boffi | DePadova brand, this is a place where visitors can forge a unique connection with elevated craftsmanship and design. It’s located in a historic building on Chalmers Street and ready to upend your every expectation.
