In celebration of Italian luxury leather company Valextra’s 80th anniversary, Snarkitecture has transformed the imprint's Milan pop-up. The all-white space now boasts an eye-catching cloud canopy overhead, providing the store with a noticeably ethereal aesthetic.

"Our approach considered the forms and palette of the Valextra collection," said Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture. "We felt that a monochromatic space would provide a striking, but complementary, setting for the Valextra pieces. Several key elements of the design were inspired by visits to Milan. We were interested in the juxtaposition of hard, architectural surfaces with soft textures, as well as the play between precision (the grid-like scaffold) and looseness (the irregular scrim fabric)."

Snarkitecture thus divided the retail space into three separate sections, each welcoming its own internal support system, with white mesh covering from floor to ceiling in many areas. To further accentuate, the walls are also adorned with matching fury carpet and quilted fabric, as Valextra's luxe leather items have then been placed strategically throughout the shop.

Less than a month ago we got a look at Snarkitecture's "The Beach" installation, the world's biggest ball pit.
