The company's location has always been in Milan's historic city centre and recently moved from Via Borgonuovo to Corso Venezia within an eighteenth-century building adorned with frescoed halls.
The space surrounds a central courtyard and is divided into three areas. The first contains a new showroom and overlooks the high street, the second is occupied by commercial, sales and administrative teams while the third area has separate access to the showroom and holds the style and creative teams.
It was important that the new design respected the building’s history. To reflect the brand, we added bespoke pieces such as contemporary lighting, tables and chairs in brass, steel and pink to create a harmonious contrast with the rich stuccos and floors.
The large halls became showrooms for Coccinelle's collections with light
suspended frames to highlight products on display without affecting the ornate decoration on the walls and ceilings.
Each office space has high performance sound-absorbing partition panels between desks to cushion the acoustic reverberation of these rooms, which in some cases have heights over 4m. We created a break area not only for employees, but for guests and small catering events too. A pink kitchen with terrazzo floor facing a long, padded, lounge-style bench combined with white tables and modern pink chairs. As a feature wall, we chose contemporary wallpaper in light shades of pink, grey and blue to contrast the antique timber floor.
