Constructed entirely from laser-cut plywood, each five-metre-high column has six facets decorated with the brand's Medusa head logo.
According to the designers, the column-like structures are intended to "recall a sense of grandeur" seen in classical architecture – something they feel resonates with the "style and power" of the Versace brand.
Each column had to be assembled on site in under 36 hours – a constraint that Hylemo took into account throughout the design process.
"The ribs are pre-assembled from overlapping layers of ply to create large elements efficiently from multiple smaller elements," the studio explained.
"The laser-cut panels that are fixed against the vaulted elements act as horizontal bracing, while the scaling triangular pattern shares a story with the show's narrative of tribe."
While audience members were taking to their seats, stage lighting was positioned so that shadows from the laser-cut patterns were cast onto the floor.
Milan fashion week's menswear shows took place from 14 to 17 January. For Prada's Autumn Winter 2017 show, AMO divided the catwalk into a series of colourful interiors with beds and benches.
