A WELLCURATED ATE­LIER

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feature -

Vis­ually ar­rest­ing from the out­side in, Ar­mani/ Casa wel­comes guests into an in­te­rior that re­flects the brand’s iden­tity, with their iconic warm and soft colour pal­ette, and plat­inum. The four-storey build­ing is home to prod­ucts that are char­ac­terised by both orig­i­nal­ity and the com­bi­na­tion of high­lyskilled tech­niques and ma­te­ri­als such as the MORFEO bed, the MADISON sofa, and the MUSA book­shelf.

The ate­lier fea­tures vary­ing col­lec­tions, from the new­est re­leases to ever-ex­pand­ing col­lec­tions. The prod­ucts fea­ture both new and rein­ter­preted clas­sics like the Logo lamp, the El­e­vante screen, the Jazz bar cab­i­net, and the new Ma­trix ren­di­tion, all in­cor­po­rated within the space by the man him­self: Gior­gio. With his crit­i­cal eye, the de­signer looked into the minute de­tails in cre­at­ing the am­biance, which is aimed at show­ing pa­trons an ex­pe­ri­ence that stays true to the light and airy Ar­mani/Casa style.

Dou­ble screens of plat­inum metal mesh stylishly sep­a­rate the space into dif­fer­ent set­tings, util­is­ing large dec­o­ra­tive pan­els of printed trans­par­ent ac­etate. Each panel re­flects the pat­terns of var­i­ous col­lec­tions and graphic de­tails of rugs, tex­tiles, and wall­pa­per. This, cou­pled up with the soar­ing ceiling, gives the show­room a sense of spa­cious­ness.

To ma­noeu­vre from one floor to the next, shop­pers can eas­ily get to the basement or any of the four floors us­ing the sculpted, cleaned-lined stair­case. The struc­ture is made of gor­geous pale oak which is fur­ther adorned with a ma­te­rial that pro­duces a mother-of-pearl ef­fect un­derneath.

The four-storey show­room is de­signed to cre­ate a move­ment flow for the per­fect shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence. Pa­trons work their way up, start­ing with home ne­ces­si­ties in the basement which range from kitchen and bathroom ac­ces­sories, to rel­e­vant wall and floor cov­er­ings, as well as tex­tiles.

The first floor greets avid col­lec­tors with ex­clu­sive lim­ited edi­tions, and iconic and beau­ti­ful pieces from Ar­mani/Casa’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tions. The mez­za­nine floor houses wall­pa­per and fab­rics for com­ple­ment­ing these lim­ited edi­tions; here, the space over­looks the ground floor, where the lat­est range of fur­ni­ture, lamps, up­hol­stered pieces, and var­i­ous other ac­ces­sories are laid out.

While Ar­mani/Casa is full of her­itage, the sim­ple con­tours of their de­signs, com­bined with their con­tem­po­rary tweaks fea­tur­ing the ma­te­ri­als of to­day, en­sure the brand re­mains rel­e­vant in an in­creas­ingly com­pet­i­tive mar­ket. The proof is in the pud­ding: the de­signs speak for them­selves, and oh, how they’re loved.
