Each of the design pieces represents the sartorial skills and attention to detail that have brought the two companies together, who, although they might seem to come from two different worlds, Design and Fashion, have many things in common. BeMyGuest interpret each piece as a personality which is dressed in unique pieces created by the tailor Anthony Knight with Vitale Barberis Canonico fabrics.

Reminiscent of anthropomorphic figures the lamps are made of resin and blown Murano glass, produced by means of the ancient art of master glass blowers. In the area adjacent to the entrance, the space takes its inspiration from a tailor’s shop, where hundreds of paper models hang, to then open into a British-style whisky bar. On display here the icons of Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten and La Manufacture – brands
for which Luca Nichetto is Art Director. In addition, there is a unique Steinway & Sons B-211 Spirio Black Masterpiece piano, number 8 in a limited edition of 20 produced in all the world.

A sophisticated environment where the anthropomorphic lamps – dressed in Vitale Barberis Canonico fabrics – are transformed into a singer, a businessman, a writer, a detective, a university professor, a journalist, an influencer, a politician and a representative of the nobility. They are the patrons of a club where they taste Laphroaig Scotch whisky.
