Lagrange12 is a renovated 17th Century apartment and retail building in Turin with luxury brands given a new home in the heart of this important shopping area.

Working with Lagrange12 and the design team behind the renovation, Ec Studio has produced shoe, handbag, eyewear, hat and accessory displays in gold and satin brass.

A former Municipal Building, the entire site on Lagrange and Giolitti Streets was reimagined as an apartment and retail space with interiors by Pininfarina and Dimore Studio respectively.

Approximately 12000 square foot of new retail space arranged over 3 floors designed by Milan-based architecture practice Dimore Studio features meticulous finishes and materials showcasing a contemporary interpretation of 1930s and 40s art-deco interiors. A rich, dark interior of marble, silk and metallic accents gives the interiors a luxury feel with contemporary furniture and visual merchandising fittings conceived to allow the rooms to remain as open spaces with natural daylight filtering through the original windows.

Amongst the merchandise is an original LC4 chaise longues by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret, and armchairs by Giò Ponti and Paolo Buffa.

The retail space of Lagrange12 is occupied by luxury fashion brands including Alexander Mcqueen, Balenciaga, Balmain, Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, Burberry, Celine, Chloé, Christian Dior, Homme, Fendi, Ferragamo, Ferragamo, Givenchy, Loewe, René Caovilla, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Thom Browne and many more.
