The marble retail location of fashion brand Forte Forte—located on Via Borgognona, in the heart of Campo Marzio, Rome—provides an unforgettable luxurious, and elevated shopping experience. Designed by creative duo Giada Forte and Robert Vattilana, the aesthetic of the store emphasizes contrast—because “in Rome, contrast is always, and has always been, harmony,” according to Forte who goes on to equate the aesthetic of the boutique as “a vibrant monolith of green onyx, a precious material with a unique design that contains a thousand-year history in the loops of its marbling.”
The presence of the green onyx as a material in the Forte Forte retail space definitely makes an overwhelming impression on the viewer—but it also carries a promise for an elevated and thoughtful design experience. The marble retail space is also complemented by brass doors and wall panels, creating an even deeper balance.
