Now, with the rise of the creative class, stylish work and social spaces have cropped up in cities worldwide. Members clearly weren’t the types to throw down a MacBook just anywhere, so Spring Place offers them a serpentine 33-seat worktable in reclaimed teak. On a visit to Spring Place—housed in the same building as the fashion creative agency and photo-shoot venue Spring Studios—the well dressed Di Oronzo, holding a motorcycle helmet, fits right in with the artsy, attractive members.
Not so long ago, business deals happened with handshakes on the golf course. Now, with the rise of the creative class, stylish work and social spaces have cropped up in cities worldwide. Spring Place, a private club in New York, offers perhaps the most chic environment for those in the film, art, and design worlds. Alessandro Cajrati Crivelli, who co-founded Spring Place with Francesco Costa, also launched Zona Tortona, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile satellite.
To create the perfect backdrop for this casual networking, Di Oronzo looked to the rugged materials and strong forms of brutalism, which has seen a revival in its cool factor. “It’s about exposing the honesty of the materials, with their own characteristics,” he explains, while pointing out the project’s cantilevered concrete forms. He notes that his appreciation for a fellow Italian architect was also an influence: “Carlo Scarpa is a poet with concrete. It took me a while to understand him. He is very much Italian in the sense that he sees a material as an opportunity to create a detail.” Interior Design
