This commercial interior effortlessly fuses raw, untreated industrial surfaces and fittings with cutting-edge materials and lighting to make an environment which continues to trick the eye and the hand as transparency, reflection and subtle lighting lead the customer ever-deeper into the space.

The shop is filled with subtle illusion and playful twists. Working with a limited palette of neutral colours, silver and untreated raw wood and concrete, the design in places reveals the undressed shell of the original space behind acrylic panels. This approach very closely mirrors Maison Margiela's design ethos thus connecting effortlessly with the spirit of the clothing on sale.
