V&A Shop, Exhibition Road  

Knightsbridge, London, England

 

The competition-winning design for a shop within the new Exhibition Road extension created a series of 4.5m high, demountable pivoting frames with slender, bespoke extruded sections developed with Vitra. The open frames are retained at their head by a diamond grid, steel lattice structure and can be fitted with a combination of shelves, hanging rails, storage bunkers and showcases, enabling a wide variety of merchandise to be displayed. The upper levels of these frames provide an opportunity for high level flexible display, and can be pivoted and/or removed to allow differing circulation routes around displays and through the space to respond to the varying themes of individual exhibitions.

Salon De Parfums, Harrods

Knightsbridge, London, England

 

The practice won an invited competition to develop proposals for a new Salon de Parfums exclusively for the sale of high value brands and bespoke perfumes. The 6th floor location presented challenges with integrating structure and existing services, but generated a solution that creates a grand vaulted arcade which forms a regular and ordered 'frame'. Arranged either side of this hall entrances, to individual units are flanked by cylindrical glass showcases. Within these, selected brands are free to express their own brand corporate identity.

Georg Jensen, Kastrup Airport

Kastrup Airport, Copenhagen, Denmark

 

This long established Danish brand sought a new store concept to promote their wide range of home and jewellery products. The developed concept brought these ranges together in a 'Scandinavian Home' setting. Each home product related to an appropriate setting within the stores 'residential' interior, with sitting and dining areas centered around a focal point working fireplace. The kitchen, as the heart of the home, was reinvented as a service bar incorporating the cash wraps, but also provided a point of interaction between staff and customers to allow the design thinking and 'back story' to the product to be told. Jewellery products were displayed in floor and wall mounted showcases set within gallery spaces. The first of these stores was built within Copenhagen's Kastrup airport and subsequently rolled out worldwide.
