HONG KONG, China 100 sqm 2018

From Milan to Hong Kong: Area-17 has brought a classic of Italian lifestyle to the vibrant SoHo neighborhood in the busy Central district. The idea behind Bella Lee bar comes from the Italian aperitivo ritual and aims to create a space suitable for each moment around the clock. A playful mix of references that recall the traditional  aesthetics of the café, bar, and club designs reinforces this idea.

Area-17 designed the new concept for Chinese eyewear brand Zèle’s stores. The payoff “Stay young, stay Zèle” translates into a design focused on a strong product and brand awareness, with a refined yet trendy atmosphere. Central to the project is the inner space, both as break time and personal place, where customers discover the pleasure of devoting time and attention to themselves.

FIORANO MODENESE, Italy 5'000 sqm 2018

The partnership between Area-17 Architecture & Interiors and Iris Ceramica Group continues with a renovation work that combines distinctive features of contemporary design with a great respect for what the brand means for its surroundings and the people living there. The refurbishment of the historic Iris Ceramica headquarters arises from two main needs: integrating the original building from the ’60s with the brand-new showroom’s volumes, and remodeling the interiors, which underwent a change in functions over the past decades. It also states the choice to consolidate a weighty brand identity and return it to employees and clients with a new, stronger visual image.

The new Jacob Cohen boutique opened in Milan in via della Spiga, at the very heart of the Fashion Quad. The new store is spread over 200 sqm and over two storeys, where Area-17 combined the richness of details to neat geometries of linear elements and surfaces, according to a color palette which deftly mixes deep blue, gold, and neutral shades of beige and browns, giving that sense of preciousness and laid-back elegance that has always been the brand’s hallmark.

SHANGHAI, China 600 sqm 2017

Area-17 designed the Shanghai-based purchasing headquarter of Lojas Renner , leading South American fast-fashion company. Inspired by the concept of cooperative working, the layout consists of a vast, uninterrupted environment. Furniture is arranged to guarantee the maximum flexibility, while only few areas are devoted to specific functions. The graphic’s design plays a major role in clearly defining the space usage, as in the case of the mail area.
