DFS Galleria by rkd retail/iQ, Singapore

March 27th, 2014 by retail design blog

A.R.E. Awards – Specialty Store over 25,000 sf – Outstanding Merit

Shiny surfaces, surface-lit glass reinforced gypsum organic forms, and fritted glass in rear-illuminated and non-illuminated form create a dreamlike atmosphere. Swirling soffits funneling down to connect with fixtures feature cutouts resembling schools of fish. Backlit panels and LCD screens add glowing color and motion. Veining and unique characteristics of marble flooring are maximized throughout the luxury floor of watches and accessories, thanks to computer scans of the slabs prior to installation. Perforated metal panels with mirrored backed surface create an interesting play on figure and ground that create a framework for brand perforations. Internally lit etched colored glass creates dramatic neutral transition zones.
