This is a project both on the interior design, which was co-designed with FormRelated and the custom lights design.
The first Toms flagship store in Greece is opened in Thessaloniki, in an old classical style building. Toms is developed on the ground level with its physical shoe store & cafe, while also using the impressive patio as a sitting area, and the basement as a secondary cafe / restaurant and studing point.
Toms is an international brand which has a very unique and strong identity, both on its concept and the store designs. Both the interior design and the bespoke lights, are designed with respect to the brand's identity together with the architecture of the building itself.
Metal is used as a basic material, in order the lights not to stand out as units, on the contrary, to be totally embodied to the store's environment, and together to be adding some "sweet raw "style to it. Their design was also inspired by a playful spirit, to match with Toms "giving" and "happy" mood. Cork and leather, is also used to naturally colour the composition.
