This is the third mono-brand store in the country and the second one after Ahmedabad, which was inaugurated in collaboration with the local partner, Design Italiano sprawled across 3,700 sq ft, the Mumbai flagship store is located at the Kitab Mahal building in Fort.
The store is created especially for design lovers, as well as architects and designers, to support them in their projects and creative process. The visits also are kept by appointment only for this. The interior design, conceived and created by Minotti Studio, the company's in-house creative department, presents a masterful alternation of colours and sophisticated textural choices. "The relationship between Design Italiano and Minotti is well-established and based on mutual trust. Since the opening of our first flagship store in Ahmedabad in 2012, we have seen a strong high demand for our collections, hence the decision to open in Mumbai with the aim of supporting even more customers, architects and designers. We offer tailor-made and unique design solutions and shopping experiences, equivalent to a visit to our Italian or European showroom," say Tarak Shah and Massimo Alberto Ottone, partners of Design Italiano.
At the Mumbai store, three living room islands add a dynamic feel to the space, presenting some of the brand's latest furnishing pieces: the Connery, Twiggy and Dylan seating systems, all designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.
