Shortlisted - Retail Interior of the Year
Dezeen Awards 2019
St James's, London
The interior of the new Wartski boutique is inspired by the brutalist architecture of the antique jeweller’s former location and other buildings, such as The National Theatre. Through the doors of the ornate, classical façade, the design team has created a surprising contrast for visiting customers.
The intricate wall vitrine lighting system utilises adjustable spotlights and ambient lighting element in various colour temperatures to achieve focussed, shadow-free intensity with the precision normally associated with museum gallery lighting. The precision and intensity of light makes the exquisite merchandise the clear focus.
