Santiago Ruiz, Partner & Director of ARK Architects visits the Rimadesio factory and showroom in Milan
Out of a total 44 monobrand Rimadesio showrooms, 14 are in Italy and 30 in the main international cities: the confirmation of a strong international calling coupled with a strong Italian heritage.
There have been 7 new monobrand showroom openings in the last year. Following the succcess of Cape Town, Tokyo, Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Marbella, Beijing and Shanghai, the following months will see the opening of monobrand showrooms in Salerno, Nice, Bangalore, Singapore, Hangzhou, Seoul, Sydney e Vigo. Openings of showrooms in Shenzhen and Hamburg are already in the pipeline for 2019.
The design of these display and exposition areas is curated by Rimadesio Studio, an in-house division of architects, visual merchandisers and stylists assigned to manage every single technical and image perspective.
Yoko Miura, the Japanese designer based in Milan, has designed an exclusive styling kit for Rimadesio. An array of suggestive, ordinarily simple yet at the same time extraordinary objects which combine the use of paper to outstanding processing techniques.
The monobrand showrooms are the ideal places for professionals or private clients to really live the Rimadesio experience. They are not merely exhibition spaces designed to enhance awareness of the collections, but they are also exclusive design and consulting hubs for professional training.
