AMBER & ART STORE
City: ST PETERSBURG|
Located in St Petersburg city center, Amber&Art store is conceived as a fluid space in which the line between the art gallery and the jewellery is lost.
The different rooms of the shops ensure the linguistic coherence through the choice of a limited number of noble materials like brass, silk and velvet textiles and two types of marble: London Gray and Black Stripped Olympic.
The semi-circular central hall is characterized by a coffered wooden countertop with a diamond design that is reflected in the geometry of the marble floor.
Opposed to the marble surfaces are the brass displays, with different heights, while on the walls – finished with raw concrete – the products are hanged on little hooks that emerge from moiré silk panels.
The hallway has been designed as a real exhibition art gallery, with glass cases exhibit amber objects laid down on Black Stripped Olympic marble pedestals.
Two rooms with barrel vaults overlook the hallway and are characterized by a more contemporary style through their blue metal panels on the walls.
The layout is therefore completed by the VIP room, where the atmosphere is more gathered and the finishings include black and royal blue velvet walls.
