Concept

A room that consists of layers of various window. It is a proposal for the store that suggest a new life style, inspired by the Diesel rock spirit of Diesel Home Collection. Function of a window is to expose to the outside world and to enable one to overlook the outside scenery. It is also a frame that connects him or her to the adjoin world. Window arouses the images of not yet seen world and is a place to imagine a new life. These windows, giving an irresistible temptation to peep, are the theme of the design. We design a room that creates the image of lives with a touch of uniqueness and creativity. By positioning many windows that can be freely opened and closed, we create various pattern of displays. The combination of the display, and Home Collection, unique and full of variety, will express diverse scenes and ideas of life and generates the image of new life style.
