Another exclusive name has been added to the prestigious list of top names in design and high end furnishings based in the exclusive Brera Design District neighbourhood. Janus et Cie first Milan design store will awake your desire for home comfort. Places to go in Milan before Salone del Mobile 2018?
Janus et Cie was founded in Los Angeles in late 70’s by the creative designer Janice Feldman, and since then has become an industry leader in elegant, high quality outdoor furnishings. The brand has created furniture for a wide range of contexts – residential, hospitality and commercial clients therein – extending its reach from that inaugural single LA showroom internationally. It now has 19 flagship stores across the globe.
At Via Fatebenefratelli, in Brera Design District, Janus et Cie is about toconfirm company’s prestigious position in the modern design landscape; while the store itself is suitably impressive. It’s an airy, classically relaxing space, flooded with light by double height windows and a serene white and cream colour scheme only broken by subtle flashes of greenery throughout.
Therein, the Fatebenefratelli design store sees an expansive, uncluttered display of Janus et Cie’s designs, displaying its full catalogue of 1000 inspirations, but there’s a cannily curated selection of everything from chairs and loungers to outdoor tables and parasols, as well as an interactive fabric installation, in which visitors are encouraged to explore the company’s textiles draped on chairs, wrapped around pillows.
Large floor-to-ceiling windows delimit the ground floor and create an extremely luminous and peaceful ambience. Limestone flooring and white walls exalt a sense of exploration and discovery, accompanying visitors to the main staircase which leads up to an additional three floors of exhibition areas and spacious mezzanine.
