The Armani Group announced the exclusive partnership between the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio and Philippine developer Century Properties.
In a statement, Armani said the partnership will involve the design of luxurious high-end residential units, common areas and amenities for Century’s latest landmark project, Century Spire.
Century Spire, designed by award-winning architectural firm Studio Daniel Libeskind, will showcase residential units characterized by elegant spaces and graceful interiors.
“If the architect’s aim is to create remarkable spaces, then it is my aim to bring these to life through my interior-design aesthetic,” said Armani Group president Giorgio Armani.
He added that “I am very pleased to be partnering Armani/Casa with Century Properties, and believe that the combination of Daniel Libeskind’s vision and my own will result in a truly remarkable place to live, full of elegance and wonder.”
Century chairman Jose E.B. Antonio said “we wanted to work with a brand that could bring an eminent degree of sophistication to this singular building. Armani/Casa fits the bill perfectly.”
He noted that “their designs are sophisticated, comfortable and functional. They not only fit the Studio Daniel Libeskind aesthetic but bring an extraordinary level of quality to their interior design work.”
The project is scheduled for completion by end of 2018.
More than ten years after its foundation, Armani/Casa is a world leader in the luxury furnishings sector. A byword for elegance and style, it stems from Giorgio Armani’s living dream of a warm, harmonious, highly comfortable and sophisticated haven.
Since 2003, the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio has provided complete interior design services to private individuals and property developers, from the conceptual phase through to the management of construction.
The studio’s work involves developing creative solutions – under the artistic direction of Giorgio Armani – that are the product of painstaking architectural research and extensive study into the project’s cultural, geographical and architectural context.
Among the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio’s most recent projects: Maçka Residences in Istanbul, Turkey and The World Towers in Mumbai, India. Armani/Casa is present in 40 countries worldwide, with a total of 53 outlets, comprising 31 mono brand stores and 22 shops-in-shops.
