Designer Robert Storey and Richard Bennett presents their most recent project, the design of the flagship store for British optical and swimwear label, Prism. The store has opened on the much talked about Chiltern street, London. Alongside the newest venture from André Balazs, the Chiltern Firehouse. The project is the first permanent space from Storey Studio, a design studio working predominantly within set design and events for fashion brands including Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, Chanel, Nike and Opening Ceremony.
Designed with Prism’s inimitable aesthetic in mind, Storey and Bennett have have created a luxurious city dwelling for the brand, incorporating plant filled terrariums and bespoke dark wood fittings reminiscent of an exotic summerhouse, yet keeping true to Prism’s urban elegance with the use of marble, stainless steel and glass.
He says “We wanted to create a space which encompassed the city scape heart of Prism’s aesthetic using the darker woods and stainless steel finishes yet nod toward the more exotic and luxurious Brazilian beach house using the living terrariums, glass and mirror”. Robert worked alongside interior architect Richard Bennett on store visualisation and production.
