Interview with Emanuele Castellini of C&C Milano


Emanuele Castellini

Company: C&C Milano
Position: C.E.O.

Favourite place in my house/office: 
My favourite place in my house is my kitchen, because it’s the place of laughing, eating, relaxing, chatting. It’s a place to share with family and friends. In a word: conviviality. My favourite place in my office is a large white table. Behind you can see all the samples. I love to feel plunged in fabrics.
Best decorated/most inspirational place in the world: Milan and Paris. Milan because I love the new spaces to express creativity that are being created, and the fact that the greatest chefs in the world are based here. Paris because I love the tradition of decoration that I consider as ‘evergreen’, maybe less modern but no doubts historically important.

How do you stay on top of current design trends and to what extent is your brand creating the trends?

Milan (shops, studios) is currently on top of the Design trends. Then, C&C Milano’s history is intertwined with the Mediterranean Sea, Tuscany’s colours and Italian coastal territories; that’s why C&C Milano will always represents an evergreen beauty.


What is the craziest/funniest/most interesting thing you ever been inspired by?

I was in Rome at a party on an old palace terrace. My sight was completely assaulted by a colourful vintage dress of a charming young lady. I remember I was hypnotised as if it was an artwork. It was very inspirational to me. 


How would the interior of your dream house look? 

It would have a total-white look, and there would be a white poodle with a golden collar.


What currently is your favourite collection - your brand? 

My current favourite collection is ‘Fragranze’, our latest Home Collection.


What would you consider as your master piece - your brand?  

I remember 2014 Salone del Mobile Event as C&C Milano’s masterpiece, in the gorgeous Atellani Garden, with the most beautiful exhibition of C&C Milano’s fabrics.
