When completed, Acqua Livingstone in the Philippines will be the first apartment building in the world to have its interiors designed by MissoniHome.
2 April, 2012
The bold patterns and colours that characterise the designs of MissoniHome – the home extension of the Missoni fashion label – will now be filling the interiors of Acqua Livingstone in Manila, the Philippines.
The 52-storey residence is the fourth of six condominium towers in the Acqua Private Residences project that’s being developed by Century Properties Group. Inc.; apart from the Missoni-branded hotels in Edinburgh and Kuwait, this is the first time that a residential development is getting the same Missoni stamp throughout its interiors.
“MISSONIHOME is known for creating its own style that reflects a celebration of life,” says Missoni’s marketing director, Vittorio Missoni.
In true Missoni spirit, the tower will feature bold colours and energetic forms in the lobbies and hallways, and even the elevators. This will culminate in The Canopy on the building’s skydeck. Housing multiple amenities on 2 floors, The Canopy will be home to floating lights, patterned surfaces, Missoni shapes and forms, with both floors united by a fanciful organic wire-mesh tree that winds its way up and connects to the mezzanine floor, where residents can enjoy open-air dining.
“Our brand is an experience of happiness, excitement, beauty, creativity, style and elegance,” says Vittorio Missoni. “We are inspired by the seasons of nature and we play with colour because life is more beautiful with colour.”
