Armani/Casa Opens in Vancouver
Celebrated housewares brand launches its first Canadian storefront in
Vancouver’s Armoury District.
Giorgio Armani is pleased to announce the grand opening of Canada’s very first Armani/Casa store, located in the heart of Vancouver’s design district at 1656 W. 2nd Avenue.
The 1,500-square-foot store and showroom, whose design was personally approved by Mr. Giorgio Armani himself, will feature a combination of carefully selected products from the Armani/Casa line, ranging from furniture and furnishings to home accessories, décor items and fabrics.
Designed and created by the Armani/Casa team, the showroom features both day and night zones, defined by double sheets of fine, platinum-coloured metal mesh spanning the entire height of the walls. Tables and displays boast a dynamic and streamlined design, underlining the sense of a constantly evolving project, a living environment, and bold creativity.
The dominant colour in the space is a soft and stylish platinum, contrasted here and there with the red and bottle green tones of objects and accessories. Both elegant and fluid, the general effect is the luxurious freshness characteristic of the Armani and Armani/Casa brands.
