Wrapping up a recent project for the offices of Invisalign, Chicago-based architect James Papoutsis didn’t have to look far for the finishing touch: The local pros at Italian-design-crazy Orange Skin had just what he needed. White lounge chairs and Philippe Starck’s clear plastic Ero[s] seats made the offices clean and spare, adding a subtly stylish nod to its functional, transparent product: contact lenses. Even Papoutsis was impressed. "Orange Skin’s owners and operators, Giuseppe Cerasoli and Obi Nwazota, are two accomplished designers who are able to understand the particular language of my projects," he says. "They are able to make informed recommendations, saving me endless amounts of time. It’s like having my own personal design department." Striking contemporary Italian furniture and modern design objects can also be seen on the company’s website.
