The new set-up of the showroom on Via Durini in Milan immerses the creations of Barovier&Toso in an evocative Art Déco mood with oriental motifs created by Misha, in an exceptional collaboration.
The main window features the elegance and charm of a cascade of light: the Venetian glass leaves of the New Felci lamp, in a custom version of the suspension model. To balance out this opulence, the backdrop is adorned with peonies painted by hand on silk, glowing in tones of silver in the moonlight. This is the Moonlight peonies motif from the China Classic Collection by Misha. The Milan-based firm that makes sophisticated woven wall coverings meets the world of Barovier&Toso in this very special installation.
The itinerary continues inside, where Barovier&Toso presents original clustered compositions of its products, where the theatrical impact is multiplied by the repetition and the game of varying heights. Here we see Palmette, with its fans of crystal feathers, overlaid to form two, three and four levels; we find the leaves of the Spade lamps with an embroidered effect, made with the dew technique, again overlaid on two or three levels, as if to form blossoming flowers suspended in the air. The last suspension lamps on view are those of the Trim series, formed by hexagonal tubes crafted with a historic technique known as “ghiaccio”, seen here in three different versions.
The display concludes with Samurai, in the double floor and table version, a proud presence with clear, striking geometric lines, interpreted from a drawing by Angelo Barovier. The lamps become even more special thanks to handpainted shades created by Misha, with the same motif of peonies seen in the shop window.
