‘The Maison In A Room’ is a space entirely redesigned and redecorated by Belgian fashion
designer Maison Martin Margiela at 10 Corso Como. the atmosphere of the room draws
on his iconographic use of black and white furniture, objects, fabrics and textures.
Trompe l’oeil walls of this Parisian apartment show a fireplace, doors and carved wood
panels to build on the space’s personality.
referencing the coloring games played by children, the walls are displayed with partially
empty numbered zones to be re-colored in different shades of grey and silver. safes are
half hidden behind classical paintings to display jewelry while sunglasses are presented
on the eyes of surrealistic dolls.
‘The Maison In A Room’ is occupied by additional designs by Margiela including:
his complete collection of home objects edited by ENO, the Maison Martin Margiela book
published by Rizzoli, ‘untitled’ his first fragrance for women, his jewelry collection,
his complete collection of ‘incognito’ sunglasses and his hand-knotted wool and silk rug
which came out of his collaboration with chevalier édition.
