The Store remains the industrial and raw character of the former space and implements high end rag installations for the most beautiful clothes while actively using the interior that is being sold as main design elements which somehow have a very private and trustful vibe. The interior breathes a homey and inviting vibe. The palette is sobre and meticulously layered, and takes full advantage of the building's original architectural elements. Exposed concrete pillars are paired with flooring of light wooden planks, and various settings with a quirky variety of furnishings have breen created that invite guests to slow down and take in the store's multitude of offerings.

 

The most unique feature of this multifaceted space is the fact that it doesn’t feel or function like a shop.

WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Chamber, a new boutique of limited edition design, objects and art, opened in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. The space’s unique concept and retail experience is the vision of Argentinian-born Founder Juan Garcia Mosqueda. Critically acclaimed architectural practice MOS has designed the interior of the space, which will be located underneath the High Line in the HL23 building, designed by Neil Denari, at 515 West 23rd Street.

 

Taking the Renaissance-era Cabinet of Curiosities as its inspiration, Chamber will be a twenty-first century reliquary for unusual objects and a platform for design experimentation. Every two years, Garcia Mosqueda will choose a different designer or creative to curate the shop’s entire program, bringing their unique viewpoint to Chamber through specially-commissioned works, and rare and vintage items. For the inaugural curatorial period, he has selected Dutch designers Studio Job, who are working closely with a dynamic group of established and emerging designers and artists to create Chamber Collection #1.

 

To this end, MOS designed the interior with a cavernous repository in mind. With the High Line establishing a new ground level, Chamber will have a subterranean feel, as if visitors are making a pilgrimage to a hidden place. The design encompasses a variety of materials and textures, which interplay with one another and contribute to the sense of intimacy and interactivity already offered by Chamber’s unique concept. A ceiling of vaults and a wall of niches will set the thematic tone for the space, referencing religious architecture and reinforcing the inspiration for Chamber as a reliquary.

 

A shared passion for collecting was what led Garcia Mosqueda to choose Studio Job—avid collectors themselves. As with each Curator, Job and Nynke Smeets are also serving as art directors, intimately involved in the concept and execution of many of the pieces. Studio Job will also design a new series of objects for the collection, along with a special edition of their Lensvelt furniture collection introduced at Salone del Mobile in 2013

WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Working to a limited budget, BAT Studio has designed an exciting retail space for Frenchologie, a French design retailer, using everyday, mass-produced, low-cost materials not usually associated with interior design.

 

The result is a rich, highly textured space featuring a paper raffia ceiling and a forest of broomsticks. The ceiling treatment, made up of 10km of hanging fire treated paper raffia - enough to stretch the length of the Eiffel Tower 29 times - is the most original and eye-catching feature of the design. A tangled series of linear shadows are cast onto the surrounding walls by lights hanging down through the stalactite-esque ceiling, illuminating products for sale.

 

Bags and smaller accessories hang from the ceiling, amongst the dense raffia, adding to the other-worldly effect. On the floor, a forest of 374 legs - made from humble broom handles - supports tables and shelves adding to the unique product display. The clothes rails continue in the same palette of materials, connecting to the existing balustrade with broomsticks spanning between the grey Valchromat sheet material to create the double rail.

 

The design and unusual materials combine to create a visually arresting interior that delivers a truly unique retail experience in Covent Garden’s chic Seven Dials district.

After several incarnations, the Greek Temple-like building was recently restored by Dover Street Market New York.

 

In this stylish, seven-story souk every detail is unorthodox, architects and avant-garde artists transformed the building into discrete spaces, environments carefully attuned to the rotating roster of high-end designers.

 

The interior of the building is imbued with a design vision and sensibilities that span fashion and interior design. In order to transform seven disparate floors into one cohesive entity, a clear glass elevator was created that pierces the middle of each floor.

 

The merchandise selection is the pairing of well known established brands such as Saint Laurent, Acne with more lesser known designers on the come up such as Gosha Rubchinski.

 

Everything is spread out in an atmosphere of beautiful chaos that combines the lifestyle concept of a massively modern-thinking and focused department store with the stiffness of a museum exhibit, tempered by a playful interior architectural aesthetic.

 

In addition to clothing kiosks, the store includes the café Rose Bakery on the ground floor.

The Voo building, formerly a locksmith, has been transformed into a thoroughly designed concept store, no expense has been spent making the place look pretty after its industrial occupant moved out.

The concept store and bar, L'Amuzette is located in a small little space with a variety of unexpected rooms and a sophisticated selection of designer furniture, home accessories, fashion, literature and vintage items. Also, young designers get the chance to sell their creations.

 

In this quirky interior, one can also enjoy an aperitif with snacks, a nice glass of wine or a coffee with dessert.

 

The design of the interior, with a homely atmosphere, was inspired by the work of architect Gordon Matta-Clark. The initial separation wall was completely edited in his style. The result is a separate door frame with two low walls on each side. When withdrawing the old wallpaper salmon pink powder color appeared. The broken walls with pieces of old wallpaper provide a nostalgic touch.

Grandpa offers a different type of shopping: service, atmosphere and inspiration is their top priority. They curate brands that feel up to their standards from a quality, environmental or image perspective.

Grandpa offers a mix of interior design, antiques, books, fashion and jewellery. The selection, although sparse in each category, is very well curated. The shop is decorated with wood and warm, calm colours, and has a cozy feel.
