Dimorestudio x Lanvin // Shanghai

Dimorestudio’s latest retail project for the French Maison LANVIN, located in the business heart of Shanghai, just inaugurated. Following the brand’s new creative direction, the Shanghai exclusive store concept will be progressively rolled out in other retail spaces in the world. Solid surfaces are perceived as smooth curtains, establishing an illusion effect: the undulated panels can be seen as a reinterpretation of Richard Serra’s large-scale abstract metal sculptures and, everywhere else, cement walls, floors and pillars are overlooked by a black painted ceiling. In sync with the contemporary and artsy mood evoked, the project includes decorative furniture as armchair Poltrona 081 by Dimoremilano and emblematic T1 side table by Tecno. This 280 sqm space represents a natural and impeccable merge between fashion and art. Real draped curtains cascading from a black painted ceiling reinforce the ambiguity impression, whilst, at eye level, these are adorned with transversal hanging bars showcasing the latest ready-to-wear items designed by the Maison’s Artistic Director Bruno Sialelli.

Buckle // Nendo

A new project by nendo, the third product designed for the “TEN:TEN” watch collection. A wristwatch typically consists of three elements: a timepiece, a wristband and a buckle that adjusts the straps length. By fusing the timepiece and buckle together into one element and removing the unnecessary part, the new design consists of only two components. This combines the two different straps into one long belt, allowing the user to easily adjust the length and fasten the watch on the top of their wrist rather than on the bottom. Similarly to other “TEN:TEN” products, the belt can easily be removed and changed into different colours and textures.  Back to: design // home

Carlo e Camilla in Duomo

// A Milano, nella location d’eccezione di Via Victor Hugo, che ha ospitato per 18 anni il suo omonimo e celebre ristorante, Carlo Cracco sceglie Gio Tirotto per reinterpretare gli interni dell’altrettanto famoso e ben riuscito format “Carlo & Camilla”. Bar e ristorante si plasmano nella particolare ed unica architettura che scende di ben due piani sotto terra, dando lei stessa le coordinate per la creazione di un atmosfera underground. “L’ispirazione nasce osservando e studiando la stessa architettura di via Victor Hugo, dove il fulcro centrale è attraversato da un’ampia scala che porta fino al piano interrato -2. Questa unica e speciale conformazione sembra essere la scatola perfetta per sovrapporre i due concetti principali che hanno fatto da linea guida al progetto: Milano e l’Underground. Milano-Underground è il mix che ho cercato di equilibrare attraverso la pulizia formale degli arredi e superficiale dei materiali, ma anche attraverso il segno grafico-decorativo restituito dallo studio dei colori e dall’illuminazione.” “Milano mi ha insegnato la ricerca e la sperimentazione, in via Victor Hugo ho disegnato un “salotto alternativo” …
