Rimadesio manufactures beautifully designed closet systems, sliding door systems, shelving units, and doors using innovative technologies and exceptional materials. For North America’s first stand-alone showroom, the studio developed a simple and inexpensive palette of background materials and details to showcase the product in a natural, organized and accessible manner. The showroom features both vignettes of complete closet systems and looser implied installations of a variety of storage and display products. The arrangements are organized to draw the visitor into the showroom and encourage interaction with the displays. Doors and door frames are arranged in a display wall with material and hardware displays near by. A sustainable bamboo floor unifies the entire showroom, while a series of differentiated floating ceiling planes help define individual product areas and support spaces.
