The warm, earthy style of Reformation’s New York flagship belies the technology-driven shopping experiences located within. The environmentally conscious clothing brand worked with Paris-based outfit Festen Architecture to redesign the space in the city’s Soho neighborhood. The brief was to reconfigure the store in order to launch a new technology-driven retail concept while keeping in line with the brand’s design ethos.
To fulfill the latter half of the goal, Festen incorporated natural tones like pink quartz flagstone flooring, displays made from stone or wood, and brown and muted ceramics from Sijeo Kim. With the row of skylights toward the back of the store, the color palette establishes a serene and inviting atmosphere while complementing the store’s earth-toned apparel.
