Archive for the ‘store design’ category
Each department is differentiated to evoke the feeling of intimacy within the large store format; inviting customers into the Trophy Room (accessories), Lounge (shoes), Treasure Room (jewellery) and Studio (beauty). The product stories presentation is clean, with materials selected to appeal to the Dutch love of simplicity.
The store outside is candid, amplified by the reflective surfaces of the furnitures and the iridescent panels on the walls, which echo the vibrancy of the color fading in the neutrality of the variations of white. The interiors refuse any color variations to give space to the bright color of make up, true identity of the brand.
Just as scattered pieces in kaleidoscope, the ceiling modules with triangle and rhombus patterns are letting light beams into the cinema, the first impression of the dazzling space has been started up as well. With the same rule of geometry, stainless steel strips are dissecting the white marble floor and reflecting the scene of flying paper pieces from ceiling to floor.
The café interior contains a collection of images that summarise the impression of an urban city. A feature wall by celebrated Portuguese street artist VHILS sets the industrial tone of the café. This unique mural is carved by using drills, chisels and hammers, using the negative space to shape a mesmerizing collage.
