an impeccable, authentic yet informal style
when it comes to materiality palette, the designers chose to utilize the same color scheme and textures that characterize its siblings in milan, london, dubai, shanghai and beijing: marble, silk wallcoverings, granite, tapestries and varnished eucalyptus woodwork complete the inside creating an elegant yet warm atmosphere. the luxury is expressed as much through the smallest details of the building and its materials as through the unique personality of bulgari itself.
