WOOD-SKIN For Maison Margiela

WOOD-SKIN is a composite material and acts as both a textile and 3D panel. It acts as a highly flexible surface, and is able to fold into a desired sculpture from a flat surface - using CNC technology. The material is made with a sandwich (normally of wood and a high performance mesh, but other materials such as felt or stainless steel can be used). Perfect for both interiors or exteriors the opportunities are limitless, WOOD-SKIN comes in both bespoke and standardised options. 

Located in the centre of the historical and high fashion quarter of Milan, the women’s boutique has two floors, boasting approximately a 300-square-metre-surface. Harmoniously in-tune with Maison Margiela store designs, the two-floor store merges with the historical elements of the location. WOOD-SKIN treats flooring as a sequence of malleable elements, covering the ground floor of Maison Margiela’s new boutique and wrapping around the boutique’s lift as an invitation to visit the first floor.
