Vi riportiamo qui di seguito il contenuto di questo bell’articolo della rivista portoghese “Attitude Interior Design Magazine” su “Zerogloss Design Store”, concept store di cui abbiamo seguito il progetto di allestimento nel 2012.
‘Think more, design less’ it’s with this motto that a store has been designed which invests in direct and emotional communication with its visitors. There are phrases on the walls that don’t just whisper, they positively shout out. They shout out because they provoke, liberate or unsettle the reader, integrating the motto through the authentic feel of the whole space – where decoration is stripped of adornment; what is encountered in the store, is there to be seen from all angles. Everything is out in the open, nothing is hidden. It’s an invitation to see, wander around and feel things with our touch.
The elegance encountered at Zerogloss, in Vicenza (Italy), is to be found in the lack of glossiness and in the respect shown for the industrial character of the building, a former factory dating back to the 1970s.
Officina 11 Studio, responsible for the project, got its inspiration from the atmosphere of international furniture fairs, creating a huge display area where the furniture and design pieces by creators from Northern Europe as well as the work of up-and-coming designers can all breathe uncluttered. Where pomp and circumstance are scarce, displayed objects are able to stand out, and this is exactly the intention. In this discourse devoid of pretence, a conceptual vision of trade, creativity and style is achieved.
This space is more than just a store, it also encourages social intercourse, being equipped with a bar and an outside terrace, which contributes to the cultural life of Vicenza with its own schedule of events. With its cosmopolitan and unpretentious register, Zerogloss breathes new life into an old factory building – and that is what being intrinsically brilliant is all about.
