The wooden jewelry counter made of aged walnut which is formed in clear geometric lines, stands in stark contrast with the unique hardwood mosaic floor. The addition of the edgy floating checkout counter contributes to the gradual illusory contour of the space. The design amber colored chairs follow the store’s minimalist style approach, while their color has been carefully selected to blend with the jewelry displays, whilst, effecting in a visually pleasant illumination.
Harmony in mass, lines, materials, colors and textures was further refined by the lighting design, creating a successful balance of contrasts while enhancing an aesthetically pleasant but also functional result. The overall design exudes luxury with touches of linear.’
