‘Colorfoto’ grew and needed a Megastore.
We tried to organize the space in a large and clean way, attempting to highlight the ampleness of the store despite the various happenings. The pavement and the ceiling, in white, contrast with the set of cabinets that cover the walls, designed in a way to serve as storage and display.
Materials/products used in this project
By the entrance, in blue, the front desk rhymes with the light boxes that are occasionally opened in the ceiling. On the outside, the logo is all over. By simplifying the image the storefronts were solved. In a matured design, in a lacework-like manner, it is endlessly repeated in a double glass cloth, slightly lagged, creating a pattern that sways as we move. In this almost abstract patch, several boxes are opened, that like visors reveal the store’s interior.
