Another project from the archives – The flagship store for Himatsingka Atmosphere on Vittal Mallya Road in the commercial heart of Bangalore.
This was the first of three showrooms designed and executed for a prominent textile company specialized in high-quality and carefully designed silk fabrics.
The design team aimed at creating an individual language representing the beauty of the product on display, a language strong enough to be repeated in the various locations. All showrooms were built in existing set-ups of unspectacular character, which we mostly left as they were to form the backdrop for the newly installed showroom in its own design language. Fluid shapes flow through the space and define the various areas: reception, showroom and customer transaction. The overall ambiance is serene, supporting the often vibrant colours and intricate patterns of the fabric on display.
