Jorge Sousa Santos which has constructed the glasses shop in Beja, now he construct his project in Lisbon, an optical store. For more information check the paragraphs bellow it!
This store design is designed to extend the exhibition to the entire area of this store. That is the main idea to construct this optical store based the architect itself. Although the area of this optical store is large, but the protagonist of the exhibition is so small, the architect drives to design an exhibition device which able to extend in the entire surface of the store walls. This device is draws itself in complex correlation of simple shapes forming a dance of departing and proximity.
A net of the vertical and horizontal prism interior design of the optical store is formed by the exhibition elements. The net of vertical and horizontal itself is built in finest quality MDF steel and the Plexiglas, so the multitasking surface of this optical store is performed. If the horizontal and vertical prism is faced to the upward it can be the lodging of the eyeglasses.
The notion of the movement is combined in all the element itself which is composes the optical store. In example the desks which is used for private consulting, the counters and the cabinet. All of those properties are in a suspended movement state; it’s similar to the wall exhibition support.
The design of the whole space is rooted by the notion of the unity and the continuity. The notion of the unity is achieved not only in a form of the object which is produce a kind of mnemonic osmosis, it but also with the materials itself. Particularly is the dark wooden floor, which is spreads itself in a state of absolute continuity.
The color decorating inside the optical store is a great idea. The blend between dark and white gives the luxury atmosphere inside it. The dark color comes from the interior design itself, the wooden floor, the sofas and the optical store table itself. All of them are colored in dark. While the optical store wall is colored in white, it gives the bright atmosphere inside the optical store. The guest who enters this store absolutely will attract at the first sight. Several mirrored wall which placed near the seat room gives the spacious effect inside the optical store. All of them are blended in an impressive interior decorating. Brilliant!
