steely Industrial super Reflection

Upon entering Repossi’s steely Parisian jewellery box, what is immediately clear is that this is a retail store like no other. Donald Judd furniture is placed in-situ. Linear display cases are cut from reflective slats that rotate like high-tech vertical blinds, while the salt and pepper terrazzo floors are a mix of foaming aluminium and resin. The industrial metal also covers the store’s walls, while overhead lighting takes the form of grid-like LEDs that feel slightly biblical in their intersections, à la Tadao Ando’s Church of Light. Spread over three floors, the tactile boutique is a retail revelation.
