A new showroom for Listone Giordano

- Www.listonegio­

In Milan, on the ground floor of a building designed by Gio Ponti and once the cradle of futurist food at the legendary Ristorante La Penna D’oca, Listone Giordano’s new showroom, designed by Michele De Lucchi and renamed Arena, stages all kinds of wooden parquet in an intense, yet never complaisan­t, dialogue with the pillars in basalt stone and the N6 grey wall and vaulted ceiling plaster. Even the countless samples in the wall archives resemble large moveable paintings (of a new futurism that today prefers wood to steel) more than elements on display, and its use shows the material’s true natural dimension. Suddenly, it’s not a show anymore, it’s all a room.
