HERMÈS SILK MIX
In its historic boutique of via Condotti in Rome, Hermès opened Silk Mix, a temporary installation inspired by a record store. The project starts from Hermès’ brief of setting up a space dedicated to the world of male silk and linked to vinyl. Evoking a recording room, the store designed by Park Associati recreates an environment in which music is protagonist and clients can enjoy an immersive experience.

IDA, Honorable mention in category ‘Interior Design’
The choice of colors, materials, and light, creates an elegant and fresh setting, with a strong temperament. The use of a sound-absorbing pyramidal coating allows an immediate referral to the desired imaginary and creates a geometric envelope, strongly characterized by colors.
The rooms have been organized in order to locate listening experiences throughout the store.
The records are highlighted by LED frames that identify the displays and create strong luminous signs. The rooms focused on the products provide frames covered in gunmetal gray-colored laminates, a black vinyl floor, and gray lacquered freestander furniture with black iron frames.
