Vitsoe Showroom

 

 

Location: 72 Wigmore Street, London W1

Client: Vitsoe Ltd.

Completion: September 2007

Brief: To design a new layout and interior for the existing showroom to coincide with London Design Festival 2007

Starting point: The showroom’s previous display arrangement, in chocolate brown colour throughout.

 

“Shaygan uses components from Vitsoe’s 606 Universal Shelving System (1960) in an unusual yet domestic way, dividing the space into sections: living, dining, library and small home study. This subtle challenge to conventions evokes a creatively idiosyncratic, feminine and international feel to the showroom, demonstrating 606’s flexibility and ability to work in an array of environments.”
