DESCRIPTION
Designed in collaboration with Singaporean branding agency EM, Florentina’s interior design sought to capture the reverence of the birthplace of the Renaissance. Both architectural and graphic elements evoking the richness of Florentine culture were sampled and re-contextualized into a luxuriously finished contemporary dining experience.

Wall details, screens, color palette and marble tiles were drawn from references found in Renaissance Florence, while the wallpaper evokes cartography and old lithography; ubiquitous graphic elements of the Renaissance era.
