“With Dolce&Gabbana Casa we wanted to create a unique lifestyle,” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana explain. “Just caress a fabric, or let your eyes roam over one of our pieces, and you immediately grasp its basic values: craftsmanship, love for handiwork, respect for tradition and pursuit of innovation.”
One of the elements that have formed the visual language of the two designers over time is gold. Opulent, a tribute to Sicily and its sumptuous palaces and churches; but also capable of suggesting the stylistic van- guards of the 1960s, that sense of glamour with an eye on the future.
Oro24K is a theme that joins the other four that immediately went into the DNA from which the creative universe of this home furnishings like took shape: Leopardo, Zebra, Blu Mediterraneo and Carretto Siciliano.
The language of Oro24K pays homage to the opulence of the Baroque and its eccentric but also very refined forms. The glorious pomp of that period comes back to life in the precious fabrics, or the smooth and hammered surfaces of the furniture. In particular, the undulated effect owes its unique character to extraordinary workmanship, rooted in the great Italian tradition of excellent crafts.

While the wonders of handiwork enable us to rediscover Beauty, the history and art of the past, and the pursuit of innovation, enable the contemporary world to gain vital force. Thanks to Dolce&Gabbana Casa, lifestyle takes on a golden finish. A new facet in the composition of an ideal of Beauty, which together with the gigantic Italian cultural heritage provides the inspiration for the two designers, who explain: “Over time, all these elements have been reinterpreted in a unique lifestyle, in the spirit of the Dolce Vita, the joy of living: the elegance of our furnishings and complements is never cold or austere, but instead takes on festive, carefree and cheerful tones.”

Limonaia a Milano, design Antonio Aricò
A spirit of discovery that is reflected in a new, important project supported by Dolce&Gabbana and presented as a preview during Milan Design Week: “Gen D – Generazione Designer” is an artist residency project that sees the involvement of ten international creatives under the curatorship of Federica Sala. An initiative that stems from the precise desire of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to translate into the field of design the same openness to the future that the company has demonstrated over the years by actively supporting young fashion talents.
