For the concept of the Ports1961 Flagship Store located at the Bund in Shanghai, we had been inspired by two important factors; its history as an international port and its art-deco style. We recycled an old Chinese house and CNC-ed the wood into a fluid liner for the collection.
Indirect LED lighting is used to enhance the space’s fluid geometry, with lighting coves concealed in the floor and above the pearly ceiling surface, thus creating a contrasting glow on the clothing and adjacent surfaces. The final effect is a rich, integrated environment that delivers maximum dramatic impact to a fluidly segmented space.
