TV-Star Matteo Viviani: KALDEWEI refines the bathrooms of his penthouse in Milan’s Mind District

KALDEWEI, Ahlen, June 2024 – With exquisite bathroom solutions made of KALDEWEI steel enamel, Italian TV star Matteo Viviani and his family of four have created a spa oasis in their Milan penthouse that skilfully combines design, sustainability and modern functionality.

Matteo Viviani is a popular journalist in Italy, where the TV presenter is considered an ambassador of an ecological and healthy lifestyle between the Alps and Etna. Viviani is committed to raising people’s awareness of sustainability. Most recently, he created a new format called “Andiamo a vedere se è vero” (“Let’s see if it’s true”) in collaboration with the lifestyle platform GreenMe. His exclusive Milan home – a penthouse in the Milan Innovation District (MIND) – was designed to be ecologically responsible from the outset, while fulfilling the highest standards of design and functionality.  With his new refuge, Matteo Viviani has created an exemplary model for sustainable hospitality. The implementation was preceded by careful research into materials and surfaces, which ultimately had to be completely in line with his philosophy. The TV star, his wife Ludmilla Radchenko and their two children Eva and Nikita quickly opted for bathroom solutions from KALDEWEI for their four bathrooms.

For Viviani, the design and environmental orientation of the traditional German company fit perfectly with the concept underlying his residential project: “My family and I wanted to create a kind of sustainable microcosm that would allow everyone who lives there or visits to spend their time in a better way.” His penthouse is located on one of the top floors of the MIND. The progressive district project focuses on contemporary architecture that emphasises harmony and well-being. It was supervised by architect Aldo Simoncelli, who was able to interpret the vision of Matteo and his family and translate it into an inviting environment with a futuristic flair. The design and materiality of the selected products correspond to a modern concept of functionality and comfort, combined with durability and respect for the environment.

Individual character for every bathroom

The guest bathroom is characterised by the floor-level SUPERPLAN ZERO shower surface in elegant matt black, designed by Berlin designer Werner Aisslinger. For her bathroom, Ludmilla chose the delicate MIENA washbasins, designed by Anke Salomon, a perfect combination of minimalist design and exceptional quality. The highlight of the bathroom is the free-standing MEISTERSTÜCK OYO DUO bathtub in Cool Grey. With its flowing egg-shape design by renowned designer Stefan Diez, it is without a doubt the centrepiece of the bathroom. In the children’s bathroom, the family chose the MING washbowl in alpine white and in Matteo’s bathroom, a matt black CONO washbasin. All products made of recyclable steel enamel offer maximum comfort, durability and a high level of resistance. They combine individual luxury and exclusive design with comfort and sustainability – this respect for the environment, convinced Viviani and his family right from the start. In keeping with the philosophy of this project, all walls are finished with Marmorino by Giorgio Graesan, a manually applied micro-lime. The floors are made of Fiemme Tremila wood, which does not require any adhesive during installation. The elegant lamps come from the Italian lighting manufacturer Lumina. “I never imagined that such a beautiful bathtub could offer the comfort that Ludmilla simply describes as 'wonderful', and that the bathtub would be so easy to clean and yet robust at the same time,” explains Matteo Viviani enthusiastically.
