Marazzi designs Milan Showroom as cabinet of curiosity

Designed by architects Antonio Cittero and Patricia Viel of Milan based architecture practice ACPV, the new Marazzi showroom is located in Milan’s Durini design district.

Marazzi, one of Italy’s leading ceramics manufacturers, invites its clients to enter and enjoy a journey of discovery as they wander through a variety of thematic spaces, unlike any store layout, in the form of individual collections, resembling cabinets of curiosities.
