Saks department store by Found, New York City

September 19th, 2016 by retail design blog

Found have pioneered an impressive spatial arrangement, using an understated and luxurious palette with crisp detailing along with a series of dramatic design elements, to create a landmark luxury retail destination. A consistent visual language enhances all the brands and departments throughout, creating a coherent and cohesive environment.

The most striking element of the store is the rotunda with radiating brass fins that form a two storey ‘veil’, which encloses the Advanced Fashion and Designer Fashion departments on levels one and two. The rotunda draws daylight into the building, as well as providing an eye-catching view of the kinetic street spectacle outside. A cylindrical marble tower within the rotunda houses the escalator, while the journey upwards leads into a stepped ‘amphitheater’ populated with mannequins.
