Armani/Casa and the Interior Design Studio
More than ten years after its foundation, Armani/Casa is a world leader in the luxury furnishings sector. A byword for elegance and style, it stems from Giorgio Armani’s living dream of a warm, harmonious, highly comfortable and sophisticated haven.
Since 2003, the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio has provided complete interior design services to private individuals and property developers, from the conceptual phase through to the management of construction. The studio’s work involves developing creative solutions – under the artistic direction of Giorgio Armani – that are the product of painstaking architectural research and extensive study into the project’s cultural, geographical and architectural context. In this way, the individual designs are developed to be perfectly integrated into their settings in terms of their features and aesthetic values. The Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio’s research impacts the selection of all materials, colours and finishes involved in the fit-out, as well as the design of the built-in or custom-made furnishings; all of this is to ensure each design is unique and in keeping with the client’s requirements.
“If the architect’s aim is to create remarkable spaces, then it is my aim to bring these to life through my interior-design aesthetic. I am very pleased to be partnering Armani/Casa with the Century Spire project, and believe that the combination of Daniel Libeskind’s vision and my own will result in a truly remarkable place to live, full of elegance and wonder.”
President and Chief Executive Officer
Daniel Libeskind is a world-renowned, award-winning architect. He has been designing major cultural, commercial and residential projects around the globe since 1989.
His works include the Jewish Museum Berlin, the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester England, the shopping center Crystals at CityCenter in Las Vegas and the The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre in Hong Kong among many others. On February 7, 2003, Daniel Libeskind won the competition for the World Trade Center Master Plan in New York City.
Daniel Libeskind has completed and is realizing many residential projects around the world: Reflections at Keppel Bay in Singapore, the L Tower in Toronto, Zlota in Warsaw, and the Vitra Tower in Sao Paulo.
Libeskind is widely known to have influenced a new breed of planners and architects interested in the future development of our cities. His commitment to expanding the scope of architecture reflects his profound interest in philosophy, art, literature, and music. Fundamental to his approach is the notion that buildings are crafted with perceptible human energy and must address the cultural context in which they are built.
