CORAZZA CONCEPT STORE
Hangzhou, China, 2013
Interior design project for the Corazza Concept Store in Hangzhou
Giovanna Astolfo, Fabio Foresto, Marta Forlese, Francesco Steccanella
(architect-in-chief: Francesco Steccanella)
The project, a very simple room cut by intersecting lines of light, is built around the central carved sculpture: a free assembled and not modular exhibitor with niches, folded like a paper plane. Ita can be adapted to spaces different in shape as rectangular, L-shaped or long and narrow spaces. It can be placed in the centre of the space in order to create and separate different areas, or it can be placed against a wall in order to hide the dressing rooms or a warehouse behind them. In the Hangzhou project the carved sculpture is placed in the centre of the space in order to divide it into three specific areas, as required by the client, which requested to create an area for the luxury brands, another one for Italian fashion brands and a third one for the bar.
