Illy Cafè | Mosaic V | Linear Tiny

Milan, Italy

Folio Mosaic V/ Folio Linear Tiny

The Milanese fashion district leaves room for Illy, the quality coffee brand, and other novelties presented by the group of the same name, beyond their colonial products. The flagship opens in the cloister of a historic building and combines the characteristics of traditional literary coffee with the innovation of gourmet restaurants. Folio® Opal 10V, with reduced thickness and rich lighting quality, enhances the mosaic of the Xanti Schawinsky illustration created for Illy in 1934, a symbol of the brand. The colourful glass dowels, applied directly on the surface of Folio® Opal 10V boast a homogeneous and intense backlight that discreetly highlights all the colours of the work. As a scenographic ornament, the Folio® Tiny profile of the Linear collection, thanks to its reduced size, expands along the entire perimeter of the composition, framing the installation with a light halo that extends on the wall, providing splendour to the art.
