The project is located in a commercial street full of worldly atmosphere, Zhongxiao East Road, Da'an District, Taipei. The store is 4.1m wide and 14m deep, with the height of only 2.7 meters. The total area is about 64 square meters. The site, which was originally a clinic, should be redesigned to meet the the client need for reception, small interactive exhibition, warehouse, and sale. The designer turned down all the walls in the original space with a heart-shaped installation in the store, as the eye-catching function, creating an artistic narrative linear space in the limited narrow site.
Based on three aspects of the space structure, brand concept and art, the whole design revolves around the love contained in the brand. Diamond, as the custom product of the jewelry brand, is extracted by the designer into unprocessed natural ore slices. The design which origins from the heart, transform the concrete symbol of love into three-dimensional context, the presentation of love in the world, to be exact. The design of irregular LED translucent metaphors the diamond luster after which the rough stone is polished. This light-emitting device is not only functional but also an artistic. The most direct way is aimed to arouse the curiosity of passers-by and find out. The hard shape and shining light interpret the design concept of global brand high-end customization, conveying a delicate and mysterious.
The whole store in gray and blue creates a balance, cultivates the image of the brand itself, and brew the mufti-facet emotion of love behind the diamond.
A blue heart-shaped installation in the center of the sight is the beginning of the ingenuity in the space. The low-key luminous block is wrapped in silver brushed stainless steel. With the movement of the position and perspective of the customers, different perspectives of images are generated. In the morphological language of different spatial levels, the blue heart becomes more eye-catching in the pure silver tone, faintly refracting light; the linear light strip extends the space, allowing the visual interface to spread infinitely; the use of an exaggerated heart-shaped installation brighten the entire gray space, expressing the dynamics with the frozen heart shape about to explode; with dark furniture displaying details, it allows the customers to focus on the central heart-shaped design. Each showcase is waiting for customers to pick up its most moving side.
The mirror and stainless steel material allows everyone to feel the love that belongs to him and her in the diamond. Through the extended display cabinets, when customers walk through the space, independent display cabinets facing different angles are designed along the walking motion line of the narrow space. Under the various reflections of light, the scenery changes step by step.
