“Here is a song from the wrong side of town
Where I’m bound to the ground by the loneliest sound
And it pounds from within and is pinning me down”
(Home – Depeche Mode)

A place like home and, at the same time, a fantasy place that projects the client faraway. It is conceived as a display cabinet that uses pure elements in order to emphasize each cloth by creating a contrast with the steel structure. This structure both gives light to the main room and folds against the walls becoming a clothes hanger.

The black color underlines the lighting system and creates a balance with the resins that cover both floor and left wall. Each element is used in order to emphasize the objects shown in it. This makes “Home” a unique store of its kind.
