Skincare and perfume company Malin+Goetz was a bit ambitious with its retail space plans for London. As a result, it now has two more stores opened in ideal locations of the city. To execute the spaces, the brand commissioned the talents of the Jonathan Tuckey design firm. With its Seven Dials locale, the team went for a more streamlined, Japanese-influenced look. The appearance was properly achieved by the precise lines of the reflective ceiling, brass accents, paper shelving and timber backdrop. Black crushed velvet walls greet customers at the entrance and dramatically leads them to the brightly lit main section. The group also calls the front of the shop a “large-scale retail television” — a minimal display of products are showcased to give onlookers full view of the inside.
Situated inside a Victorian building, the Islington location was given a more modern look by highlighting the warmth and texture of the space. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the store are the curved glass windows and Irish green facade. For a sleek contrast, timber shelving units were used to replicate the mullions found at the entrance. Check out both shops if you ever find yourself in London.
