Our third Miami signature store was created in partnership with the Brazilian firm Metro Arquitetos Associados, who were guided by the design principles of simplicity and reduction in a space that explores synergies between the Brazilian modernist tradition and the Art Deco geometry that proliferates in South Beach.
Beyond the store’s zinc-clad exterior lies a bright space of concrete, polished plaster and terrazzo in pale tones. The design deliberately avoids right angles and contrasting colours, delivering a light-filled, monochromatic space of curves and cylinders. Colour and shape reflect a formal purity typical of the two chief architectural influences.
‘In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.’
