Between August and September of the past year 2020, in the city of Piacenza Planium realized the idea of creating a shop of beauty products using the properties and potential of Calamine, an oxide born from the hot rolling of the steel, that owns enviable chromatic shades. Air Force Blue, Anthracite Gray, even Magenta Red are among its colors, with a very dark overall predominance that gives a "nocturnal" connotation to the whole. For this project, Calamine was installed both on the floor and as a wall covering, creating a truly remarkable optical effect with this double choice. Architect Micaela Pisaroni is responsible for the architectural project; it is a total of 40 m² at 142, Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
For the installation it is essential to specify that two different systems have been used; Calamine has been installed on the floor with MG01 Magnetic Floor, a totally dry magnetic system that allows a great saving of time due to its speed and allows it to be installed even on pre-existing floors; on the wall, on the other hand, the metal with multiple streaks was laid with AC01 Stick-On, to allow an unusual and in some ways original use of the Calamine wall.
The choice of Calamine does not seem random at all: it is in fact a texture that perfectly matches the Interior context that is created in the salon, so much so that at a glance a superb contrast dominates between its shadowy tones and those " sparkling” ones of the wall lights that pass through the cuts with a rigorous geometric connotation.
"The project stems from the desire to transform the small architectural volume" - write Arch. Michela Pisaroni - "with its essential and rigorous shape, into an elegant container in which the leitmotiv of black&white contaminates all the architectural and furnishing elements, specially designed for N@T.
The use of natural materials, metal, wood, lava stone and glass, binds the various elements, with a game of references to the theme of essentiality and simplicity, which, quoting Coco Chanel, is always synonymous with elegance."
The Calamine slabs are 300x1,200x2 mm in size; after being laid, Calamine has been waxed: this allows the flooring to be more durable and resistant even to any external atmospheric phenomena, therefore a strong tendency towards preservation, and on an aesthetic level this treatment gives the color more strength and more shine.
The scenic effect is truly captivating.
