Shoe Shop Interior Design | MOSTIP | Shiga | Japan | Eastern Design Office

Shoes are displayed on the big triangle. They are placed as if an invisible man is enjoying a moonwalk. An arrow tip shaped triangle is not floating, rather it is slightly touching on the ground with a tension as if it were to start moving.
One side of the entire wall is covered by a mirror, therefore the space seems enlarged twice, and the number of triangles may increase from two to three or four with the angle one looks into the space. Moreover, the big triangle will change its form into a diamond........more

Bookstore Interior Design | Tanum Karl Johan Bookstore | Oslo | Norway | Jarmund Vigsnæs Arkitekter

This forms an identity for departments and aids wayfinding for pupils, visitors and staff. The implementation of colour, imagery and simple lettering/numbering creates a wayfinding system that accounts for all users with a range of abilities......more

Bar Interior Design | OQO | London | Hawkins Brown

OQO was an entirely new concept in mixing Chinese dim sum with New York cocktails. A heady mix of supergraphics and superfood!
Mark Chan came to Jeremy Walker, at Hawkins\Brown, determined to make his dream of a cocktail bar selling dim sum a reality. We helped him find a site on Islington Green and introduced him to SEA Design. Together we developed a graphic identity of giant photographs of brightly-coloured vegetables spelling OQO. This campaign reached out across London, carried in advertisements in Time Out, Wallpaper Magazine, London Underground and bus shelters and brought a smart crowd to the restaurant.
OQO’s interiors were dark and mysterious, focusing on the brightly lit graphics, a shimmering bar and oriental seating..........more
