MessiniMessini Cashmere Showroom

The project concerns the creation of a showroom space for a new made in italy brand: messinimessini. The atelier is located in Umbria near Perugia, a land with a great textile tradition famous all over the world especially for the precious cashmere yarns. (Thanks to prestigious companies like Brunello Cucinelli and Fabiana Filippi).

The showroom is housed in an old mechanical garage, on the ground floor: a single 70 sqm space where the industrial past is still strongly present, with its traces lacerated on the structure.

The client has decided to set up here its atelier where the garments of the line are conceived and designed, and finally shown to the public. A timeless space capable of telling an ancient story, which takes its inspiration from the industrial character of the old garage.

The result is a space through a relationship of affinities and contrasts, obtained through the use of poor and rough materials such as cement iron and wood that are used next to the brass.

The lime decoration on the wall and ceiling gives timeless italian elegance and old brushed brass gives life to a continuous profile that moves through the space. Like a cashmere thread, it is woven, creating spaces and connecting functions in a precise continuity.

The showroom is equipped with fabric storage cabinets, work desks, and a relax corner with custom designed sofa. The meeting table, in the middle of the room,  was realized with recovery wooden slabs obtained from an oak beam of XVII-XVIII century.

Everything was made entirely on specific designs by Umbrian artisans, which made possible a project of great quality and craftsmanship.
