Salvatori opens first Dutch flagship store with Piet Boon Studio
We are proud to announce our first flagship store in the Netherlands in partnership with renowned Dutch design agency, Studio Piet Boon. Forming part of a new 500 square meter bathroom showroom, we have been invited by Studio Piet Boon a company that shares a passion for timeless and high-quality design to participate in a new venture in the thriving design district of north Amsterdam.
Curated to showcase the broad range of Salvatori’s diverse range of products and surfaces, the flagship store will present pieces from across the Home, Lighting and Bathroom collections that demonstrate the brand’s attention to detail, material and craftsmanship. Elisa Ossino’s Balnea collection articulates the expressive potential of Bianco Carrara marble, contrasting the weightlessness of the pleated linen shower curtains with the mass of a bathtub carved from one contiguous, carefully selected piece of stone. Together with a basin and mirror that echo the simple, elegant form of the monolithic bathtub, the collection foregrounds the bathroom as a place of calm and contemplation.
Complementing Ossino’s collection, the flagship also features basins from David Lopez Quincoces bathroom range, which pairs natural stone with wood shaped by some of Italy’s finest wood workers, wall mounted basins and mirrors by Ossino, and a selection of smaller, sculptural basins demonstrating the range of finishes and stone that Salvatori offers.
Of particular note from the Home Collection, Piero Lissoni’s Colonnata bookcase uses ten different natural stones to create a playful statement piece, the colour animating the space it is set in. At the flagship store, the bookshelf has been dressed with a number of smaller products, including Ossino’s three-dimensional interpretation of the bottles from Giorgio Morandi’s still lifes, pieces in brass and marble from Studiocharlie’s desk collection, and paperweights and pen holders designed by Vincent Van Duysen. Additionally, Salvatori’s lighting collection is represented by Farfalla, which uses the translucent properties of marble to give the elegant, thin lighting system a sense of weightlessness, and Urano, a hollow sphere carved from a cube of Bianca Carrara over five days and finished carefully by hand-sophisticated design that achieves a simple and timeless beauty.
