The Holy Grail of books, Taschen, has opened its first store in Italy on Via Mer­av­igli, Mi­lan. In col­lab­o­ra­tion with star industrial designer Marc New­son, the leg­endary book­store cre­ated large glass top cab­i­nets to present the Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tions and Art Edi­tions.

Other artis­tic col­lab­o­ra­tions that make up this new icon in­clude the stunning ter­razzo floor­ing. Crafted by Amer­i­can artist Jonas Wood, it beau­ti­fully de­lin­eates Cal­i­for­nian flora and fauna in re­fresh­ing blues, greens, and yel­lows. There’s also a spi­ral stair­case in a gra­da­tion of colours by Sal­va­tore Licitra. And in cel­e­bra­tion of Ital­ian flair, the store will be decked with in­cred­i­ble de­sign pieces from Benedikt Taschen’s per­sonal col­lec­tion. www.taschen.com
