milan: the maison in a room

if you visited this year's salone del mobile you may already have seen maison martin margiela's installation the maison in a room at galleria carla sozzani [on until may 30]. the room is inspired by the iconographic use of black + white for the interior of its paris headquarters. this colour scheme has been captured in trompe-l'œil walls depicting a lavish 18th century parisian apartment. actual paintings adorn the walls yet hide lockers with jewellery and a collection of sunglasses are displayed on surrealistic cabinets. this installation showcases all of maison martin margiela's non-fashion product lines. location: corso como 10 [porta garibaldi]. © maison martin margiela
