10 Corso Como: An Italian Geometric Treasure Trove

August 31, 2012 § Leave a comment


While developing a series of geometric wallpaper patterns, I’m referencing some of my photos from a recent trip to the iconic, genre-defning, Milanese emporium: 10 Corso Como. Located in a dense, historical neighborhood, 10 Corso Como has provided a nearly transcendent shopping experience for well over two decades. It’s not so much a store, it’s more of an institution. Once inside the beautiful gates, you can enjoy a delicious meal, spend hours perusing books in the 2nd floor bookstore, take a stroll through a current, world-class art installation, relax on the rooftop garden terrace, or, of course, shop. The clothes, shoes and accessories are, of course, exquisite.

Today I’m especially inspired by their circular patterns, integrated into the logo, displays, and fabrics.

No trip to Milan would be complete without a visit to the store, which shares it’s street address with it’s name, 10 Corso Como.
