A while ago a had the pleasure of visiting Gessi factory and their showroom in Milano. The journey through the factory took us through sequences of unique working stations that transform raw materials into luxurious fixtures of different Gessi collections. Its really amazing to see it all happen right before your eyes and admire the contraposition of modern and traditional working proctices.
The Gessi showroom is located right in the heart of Milano. It occupies a huge repurposed historic movie theatre, now a multileveled, dark space, filled with luxury materials, furnishings and unique objects that cintrubuted to the worldwide succes of the brand. What i loved the most is the fact that their mainly minimalistic products were shown in combinations with different interiors, ranging from modern to vintage and ‘Russian’ to ‘Maroccan’.
