On a brisk April evening, less than 24-hours before the official launch of Salone del Mobile, legendary design icon Giorgio Armani presented his 2019 Armani/Casa collection in the spectacular Armani/Teatro. The Brutalist space, created by Japanese designer Tadao Ando in 2000, was beautifully transformed into an intense otherworldly environment.

As the event unfolded, Mr. Armani, dressed in signature all black, moved through the invited guests, warmly greeting friends and associates, pausing for photographs, and welcoming introductions.

Around the room finely crafted objects of wood, leather, marble, and metal, were displayed in separate sections, without clutter or overlap, reinforcing the strength of the design.

Overhead, light filtered through a series of remarkable aerial creations. In bright and vivid tones of red, forest green and petrol blue, the resulting luminescent was breathtaking.

Accompanied by perfectly chilled Champagne, the event was a soothing prelude for Salon del Mobile.Milano, which would begin the following morning by welcoming 370,000+ delegates from 188 countries.
