"When we ventured into designing the main location of Boutique Toma, we welcomed this project as an opportunity to envision it not only as a commercial space but as an environment with a glamorous atmosphere to make Toma a brand recognizable also from their store appearance.
The boutique is located in via della Spiga 2, one of the streets in the fashion district of Milan, in a building designed by the famous Milanese architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
The store was conceived precisely as the living room of a glamorous house. That is a unique environment where we combined a chandelier by Vistosi from the 60s, with a large bar cabinet by Fontana made of colored mirrors and metal profiles, bookshelves in the 50s style made of wood and brass and, as in any living room, an elegant fumoir tub sofa by Poltrona Frau.
All the elements of the store, from the showcase area to the internal display, are bound together by the materials used to clad the walls and floor.
Thanks to the collaboration with Mar.Val, the floor has been enhanced with Sahara Noir. This marble, characterized by a black background, was installed applying the book-matching technique to create plays of light. As its veining is made of quartz and oxides inclusions, it embellishes the floor with golden sparkles. The same marble was molded to create the countertop.
Working with Mar.Val, we focused on marble starting from its selection in their workshop, working together in the nesting stage, to the installation carried out by its competent installers."
