This is the flag­ship show­room of one of the most in­ter­est­ing heavy­weight Ital­ian de­sign brands – the fact that it is the only au­tho­rised pro­ducer of fur­ni­ture by mod­ernist French ar­chi­tects Char­lotte and Per­riand Le Cor­bus­ier is just one of the rea­sons why. Many of the pieces on dis­play have been cre­ated in the style of em­i­nent 20th-cen­tury de­sign­ers. The supremely tal­ented new art di­rec­tor Pa­tri­cia Urquiola over­saw the brand’s 90th-an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions last year, which in­cluded re-launch­ing nine pieces, among them Ger­rit Ri­etveld’s Thir­ties Utrecht arm­chair in new fab­rics and Carlo Scarpa’s Six­ties Doge ta­ble.
