Bizarre

boutique

A woman’s boutique was the perfect opportunity to challenge the typical retail store conventions where the walls, fixtures, ceilings and floors are all separate elements. It also provided a chance to test processes of blending these elements to generate space where the store itself becomes the podium to display the merchandise as art objects.

The solution was to fabricate a continuous surface to first lead you into the space and define it. This surface bends, folds, and is cut to display merchandise and conceal mechanics therefore creating a visually pure backdrop for a memorable shopping experience.­
