About

The casual setup of the shop invites a playful interaction  – many guests are tempted to lounge in the giant basket of eggs during their shopping experience, or stay longer to enjoy a light meal or drink, seated on acrylic star benches.  The bamboo-sheltered alfresco dining and vibrantly colored bar spaces transition seamlessly into the retail and exhibition spaces, creating a more diverse experience than a traditional retail arrangement is able to offer.

The shop attracts much attention from passers-by via its giant “vintage-broadway” style signage that wraps around the facade.  Lettering changes on a regular basis to promote events or share thoughts.  The interior palette is largely comprised of black, white, teakwood and mirror elements, which allows the bold colors and forms of the furniture and products to really stand out.
