When designing the interiors of the Fabi store in Rome, Architect Antonio Girardi and Studio Labark felt that a customer entering the space should not just simply be buying shoes, but that a true sensory experience should await them once they cross the threshold off of Via del Babuino. Large partitions with cantilevered shelves divide the exhibition space of the long barrel-vaulted corridors, which seem to support the large and looming false ceiling as well as the space in which rgb Flos lighting has been installed. The floor is characterized by the projection and shadows of the false ceiling which divides it diagonally into two parts: the first has been overlaid with treated parquet and the second covered in carpet. Dividing the two spaces is a strip of chrome steel. The women’s exhibition area is the most opulent of the store’s spaces: here, multiple Taraxacum Flos lamps have been suspended from the ceiling in order to create a spatial composition of light in between the two levels where the height is multiplied thanks to the large geometrical mirror installed in the ceiling. Sliding velvet panels, a large ottoman with vintage cushions, rectangular carpeting and two large handcrafted closets with drawers and posterior mirrors help to make this space both inviting and exclusive. The soft colors of the walls, the use of glass and mirrors for the furnishings, natural wood parquet by Listino Giordano, cashmere carpeting, comfortable sofas, handcrafted ottomans, and studied lighting design all help to enhance both the exposition of the merchandise as well as the general atmosphere, creating the perfect setting in which to display the highest quality “made in Italy” products of Fabi design.
