Lara Bohinc Jewellery Shop - Hoxton Square [ projects, , interior ]
The scene of buying and experiencing the LB107 is based on the split between the known and the (un)expected. By constructing the individual, the (un)-expected, we changed Lara's way of creating the intimacy between the final user and the jewellery into a geometrical feature.

The interior for the jewellery and accessories shop overcomes the problem of a ‚shop without a shop window' by turning the customer's visit into an experiential journey. It combines elements of a shop, an exhibition space and a place for intimate social events - to create "Lara's secret garden". The experience was translated into geometry by dematerializing the walls using membrane fabrics. These stretched fabric panels act as jewellery supporters, light diffusers and interfaces between the shop and the visitor.
