Armani interprets the lightness.
Armani Casa closed up 2016 Salone Del Mobile with a true masterpiece of the new 2016 collection: 50 limited edition ‘Club’ bar cabinet pieces hand painted on the finest walnut wood.
Exquisite embroideries that, over time, have characterised the Armani image, are again transformed into textures that are now seen in the 2016 home collection presented at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
In a new space that has just been acquired and is set to undergo a major transformation in the months to come, a temporary exhibition offered visitors the opportunity to see a preview of the new Armani Casa collection. Specially designed for the occasion, the striking mise en scène on Corso Venezia highlights the central theme – the LIGHTNESS. The Armani/Casa store of Via Sant’Andrea was officially moved to the famous DePadova showroom, in Corso Venezia.
The deep black of the walls and the dark grey Bedonia stone floor are a counterpoint to the full-height light panels on thin mesh printed with motifs of the collection, which create subtle divisions between environments.
Large lanterns in delicate semi-transparent gauze hang from the ceiling, displaying images of the new accessories on all four sides. The view from outside is hidden by lightweight canvases with bamboo prints that line the windows, filtering natural light, softening it.
