Stone Island has recently moved its Rome flagship store to Via del Babuino 174, the same street the previous flagship was located on.

The new store measures 400 sq. meters, double the size when compared with the previous one. The store hosts the Stone Island and Stone Island Junior collections as well as the Stone Island Shadow project.

The store interiors, designed by Marc Buhre, industrial designer from Heidelberg, are characterized by vaulted ceilings, industrial design decors, neutral colored walls, red LED lights and colored glass inserts.

Mirror-effect and industrial felt shelves with modules similar to those used for sailing boats are juxtaposed to stone floors, completed with copper and steel inserts and stylized elements reminding of the wind rose, the brand’s own logo.
