A space for the collections of the master silversmiths, not just a boutique but also a place where the contemporary art de vivre takes form in all its aspects. In this treasure chest, silver is a constant presence together with the concept of reflection, with a focus on the collection by Gio Ponti and his legendary pieces created towards the end of the 1920s. The decorative style is ton-sur-ton, metal on metal.
Stéphane Parmentier, keeping faith with his own style, has created a harmonious game of contrasts. Bronze and above all wood bring their patina and warmth. The dégradé carpets balance out the mirrors on the ceiling. All the modernity and character of the works of the master silversmiths are associated with the force of the brand’s roots and its experience. The expertise of the artisan shines through in historic objects.
On the other hand, the Arborescence collection by the designer Ora-Ito reflects the taste of Christofle for contemporary design. The flatware is shown on a fine wooden table that embraces one of the two stone columns, evoking historic Milanese palaces. The trays are hung on the wall, creating a collection of mirrors.
Starting in the middle of the 19th century, Charles Christofle applied the recurring motif of the bee on the company’s shield, a symbol of industrious work par excellence, values that are still carried forward today by the company. The bee has prompted Stéphane Parmentier to create a honeycomb wall for the display of the products.
Stéphane Parmentier has invented a truly modern yet timeless “silver palace.” Charged with historical and cultural influences, like the brand itself, the Milan flagship store communicates all the spirit and force of silver. Long considered the leading expert in the high-end art de la table, Christofle is a contemporary luxury brand that has made silver, a legendary, timeless material, into its main focus of expression.
An emblematic symbol of the French art of living, Christofle constantly renews its heritage by perpetuating codes and icons from the major currents of the decorative arts, revitalizing creativity thanks to collaboration with acclaimed artists and designers, also for the production of precious, elegant bijoux in Christofle silver.
