The project

  • Location Gallarate - Italy
  • Date 2007
  • Studio Arch. Riccardo Papa
The head quarters of the Italian brand Yamamay, a leading manufacturer of lingerie, nightwear and beachwear, is located in a newly built structure in Gallarate. This is the design and research centre for the collections and houses the central offices which control a franchising network of hundreds of points of sale in Italy and abroad. The common areas are spacious and bright and the offices have a modern, essential design. The surfaces in wood and glass are uniform and linear. Natural light pours in through large floor-to-ceiling windows and is screened by white fabric curtains. Partition walls in satin-finished glass ensure light even in the corridors. Red is the only colour used, apart from the white of the walls, the ceilings and the sun-screen blinds. Red is the colour used for a small number of structural and furniture elements which lend character to a young, creative work area.

For the flooring the choice went to the ELEGANCE series in its warmest colour shade: Via Montenapoleone. This series is a faithful replica of the Antalya Limestone, the most beautiful limestone of Asia Minor.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
