The cosmetic store is located in a loft-like space from the 1920s with raw elements, such as the original wood beams and exposed brick, which has been painted white.
Backlit glass rods form a curved wall in front of etched mirrors extending from the storefront back into the store to bring light into the store in a unique way. By day the elongated tubes are lit from skylights, and by night from an invisible light cove. A mirrored cosmetic counter and lit images line the remaining walls.
The centerpiece of the store is an interwoven zigzag-shaped display fixture with black Corian walls and sloped Calcatta marble counters on which the cosmetics collection is displayed. A suspended custom LED light fixture above follows the shape of the counter.
