Giorgio Armani himself has long been a fan of Silk Georgette®, the stone he describes as “the perfect greige” and, as with many of his fashion stores, it was chosen by his design team for the Armani Hotel in Milan.
The project to decorate the bathrooms in Silk Georgette® required almost 7000 square metres of Silk Georgette® and is a great example of Salvatori total look, with not only the floors and walls featuring the material, but also the bathtubs and cabinets.
This, however, posed another challenge. Using stone for cabinets in a private bathroom is one thing, but the potential heavy workload in a hotel meant that we had to consider the amount of stress each cabinet would be subjected to. Working with designers and joiners, we developed a system with modular pieces all shaved to a thickness of less than 10mm. We then attached the stone to a wooden structure.
The result was cabinets which looked as though they had been created from one single block of stone, yet were light enough to ensure the drawers would move smoothly and that the cabinet would stand up to the rigours of hotel life.
And, because only Silk Georgette had been used for the floors, walls and the cabinets themselves, the overall effect was truly a “total Armani look”.
