The first Kinnasand flagship showroom in Milan has been designed by the renowned Pritzker Prize winning architect Toyo Ito, who is recognised as one of the world’s most innovative and influential architects.
The light-filled showroom showcases Kinnasand’s colourful textiles in captivating fashion.
Toyo Ito: »Kinnasand produces extremely delicate and beautiful textiles. How should aspace be designed for these textiles to be seen most beautifully? My approach would be to cover the floors, walls and ceiling with soft and reflective materials, creating animpression that the textiles are suspended in space. The visitors encounter the textilesface-on in this surreal and virtual environment.« and continues: “I would like the visitors entering this space to have the impression of both textiles suspended in the air and exquisite colour lit by the soft light streaming in from the gentle reflections of the glass panels in the background”.
