Exhibition Layout - Architects Calvi Brambilla
In 2018 antoniolupi has renewed and completely changed its Layout The project of the stand at the International Salone del Mobile of Milan and of the Milan flagshipstore were entrusted to the Calvi Brambilla design studio. Starting from the concept that antoniolupi products look at human perspective, Calvi Brambilla's intervention focused on the upper part of the space. The new ceiling, consisting of intentionally irregular architectural vaults and "hung" at the bottom dark, gives depth to the whole show-room. A gesture of freedom compared to certain spatial symmetries.
