Rimadesio, a leading Italian design brand, has opened its flagship store in London, its first showroom in the UK
Located at 83-85 on Wigmore Street, in the central area of West End, the store has been curated by Giuseppe Bavuso spreading over 300 square meters across two levels connected by a projecting staircase. Two large windows overlook the street revealing the best pieces of the collection, among iconic proposals and significant novelties such as the Modulor boiserie system.
The exclusive project is told through a careful materials research and an architectural vision of interior design. The refined setting is emphasized by the warm tones of walnut wood, Vicenza grey stone and bronzed metals.
The floor, a total area of approx 300 m2, made of 100 x 100 cm Grigio Argento (lightly brushed) tiles, has been installed with minimum thickness joints to create the effect of a unique consistent surface.
The cladding composed by rectangular 100 x 50 cm tiles, glued and secured with non-visible stainless steel brackets, has been conceived to create a rhythm given by the alternate texture of each tile.
Staircase elements have been pre-assembled at Grassi Pietre, and mounted on a stainless steel structure secured to the wall.
The renewed exhibition identity aims to highlight the quality, the excellence and the typological variety of Rimadesio products.
This unequivocal showroom highlights the characteristics of the Vicenza stone and its ability to blend with different noble materials, to enhance the content of the project.
