Following successful collaborations with Ruco Line that included a line of trainers and the ’Vrac’ bag, architect Jean Nouvel was called back to design the Italian footwear brand’s Roman flagship. The boutique’s pared-down décor is perfectly tuned to Nouvel’s elemental aesthetic by emphasising the space’s pre-existing arches and angles. Within the all-white interior, an interchangeable steel display system rises from the floor at various points throughout the boutique, where the shoes are artfully showcased.
