Effimero Barocco

EFFIMERO BAROCCO is a collection of digital graphics inspired by Baroque Rome, architecture, ephemeral scenic structures that were designed and built in the city’s squares during that era in occasion of religious or secular celebrations.

In single design or pattern, graphics can be reproduced at different scale sizes on panels, textiles and wallpapers. 

EB collection is a project developed by architects Cecilia Anselmi, Carlo Pianosi and Fabio Gasparri. The evocative design of these graphics, which refers to a baroque visionary iconography, is a free contemporary ready made of fragments of images and it is inspired by an imaginative power of Rome, which still widely influences creativity of contemporary artists.  

EFFIMERO BAROCCO is a project dedicated to those who need to modify, renovate or even just reinvent a single room or a corner of a space. It is dedicated to those who want to bring and keep with them wherever, at home, in their office, stores or leisure and entertainment spaces, fragments of the visionary and scenic atmosphere of that special art season of Rome. 

EB modifies interiors, which by definition are confined and designed to accommodate ordinary daily life, into extraordinary, surprising and scenographic places. Interior space with EB becomes as an illustrated book. Its eclectic, evocative and bold graphics completely modifies atmosphere of spaces that become magnetic and enveloping.

EB opens interior spaces to narrative through the edges that define them. Walls and surfaces, such as panels, doors, table tops, partitions, curtains and tapestries, are no longer just the physical limits of empty spaces or volumes of furnishings, but all elements that become narrative medium.

EB is eclectic and it has the ambition to oppose flattening of aesthetic taste of styles, to oppose absence of dreamy and fantastic, the complete removal of decoration that defines modern rationalist and functionalist style, keeping homologates contemporary interior aesthetics. EB is ductile and proposes an eclectic style able to dialog with minimal modernism at once and suitable to a wide range of solutions in specific contexts.

And referring to other moments in history does not mean rejecting the new, but rather combine a dialog between assonances or dissonances, between different styles and periods; also in order to being aware that art of every era is a constantly inexhaustible source of inspiration both for reinventing the present in a vitalistic way and for constantly reimaging the future.


STUDIO ROOM 28b is an architecture and design agency based in Rome. A common project management philosophy has led Cecilia, Carlo and Fabio to share the search for the values of beauty, respect for pre-existing structures and above all to listen to the essence of places and objects.

The office, located in Monti district, the ancient heart of the city’s creative activity, is an open space, a hub where a network of contemporary art and crafts actively collaborate to achieve a design with a sartorial approach for define of unique and custom environments made.

STUDIO ROOM 28b modifies spaces, designs furnishings and accessories from concept to realization.
