Yves Saint Laurent Museum

Marrakech, Morocco

Studio Ko, 2017

The museum’s 4000 SQ surface is occupied by exhibition spaces with 2000 items of clothing and accessories and thousands of designs by the fashion designer, a bookstore, a library of rare books and an auditorium.


Gio Ponti

Studio KO’s project starts from the material and is inspired by the exoticism of Marrakesh: the building is characterized by cubist lines, with terracotta lace that evokes the movement of fabrics, respecting the surrounding landscape. The building is in fact made of ocher-colored materials.

It was decided to use the Gio Ponti Lama handle, with an independent, expressive shape and influenced by ergonomic needs.
