Hong Kong – To design a shop that would highlight the function and value of the product sold there, local studio A Work of Substance imagines Khromis, a 75-sq-m sunglass boutique, as a showcase of light by multiple means.
The interior represents the studio's exploration of micro and macro light, reflection and refraction, through a clever use of materials that invoke the full participation of its visitors' senses. The designers use materials that transmit, focus and diffuse light, including stainless steel, mirror, acrylic, glass and equally bright white (eco-friendly) paint. Three large windows, featuring elegantly rounded corners, bring light into the corner shop. This radius is repeated in multiple ways indoors and out: in doorways and passageways, multifunctional niches, and in furniture.
