Today, all that remains from this initial project are the Zeus fashion boutique and the design collection, which is primarily designed by its Art Director Maurizio Peregalli.

Created for everyday use, they express a concept of "being" as well as an elegant, understated style. The look is austere and technological, and the materials are functional, simple and economical.
