LocationFifth Avenue, New York City
ArchitectClaudio Pironi & Partners
Casadei, the Italian family brand of shoes, which can trace its origins back to 1958, has constructed its first presence in North America with an 1,100sf showroom on Fifth Avenue. The furniture and displays are wrapped in white eco-leather accentuated with stainless steel trim pieces. The wall-hung shelves double as light boxes illuminating the shoes below. Stratified glass with silver silkscreen was imported from Italy and installed to run along the longest length of wall producing a smoky reflection of the space.
