Rubelli, the historic Venice company and producer of top-of-the-range furnishing fabrics, is opening a new showroom in the Brera district in the centre of Milan.
The new space at via Fatebenefratelli 9, on the corner with Corso di Porta Nuova – directly opposite the Palazzo Parigi – covers a surface area of around 450 square metres set out on three levels. Six large windows will also allow greater visibility for the collections of fabrics and furniture with the Rubelli Group brands, now also including the new Rubelli Casa range.
With a carefully crafted interior design by the Studio Rubelli director of design, Chuck Chewning, the new Rubelli showroom, as explained by the CEO Nicolò Favaretto Rubelli, aims in the future to be “the showcase for the excellence of the Group collections in that which is today the world design capital and at the same time a space for housing exhibitions, events and presentations, taking its rightful place in a lively and fast-moving area such as Brera”, undisputed centre for design and an essential stop-off for visitors to the Salone del Mobile and Fuori Salone.
The opening is scheduled for April 14th next to coincide with Design Week, the most important international event in the design world.
For the occasion an exhibition of watercolour sketches by Luca Scacchetti, Italian architect who designed the first Rubelli Casa collection, is to be set up in the showroom.
