In the far corner, the classic John Prouvé
Potence Lamp complements the black steel and
illuminates the oak-clad cash counter.
The simple, light backdrop is critical in
allowing the fashion on display to have all the
attention. A solid black rail, versatile as a shelf
and a garment rail, floats lightly in space,
creating a bold contrast against the existing
white pressed-tin panels.
The design provides ways to display the
merchandise differently depending on the owner’s
fashion direction. Schin Architects worked very
closely with both joiner and steel fabricator, with
numerous prototyping of details to achieve the
design intent and client happiness.
Love Story’s subcontractors included
Eurotrend Kitchens and Furniture, and KC’s
Steel Constructions. Extensive prototyping was
completed by Tyrolean Touch, and Murobond
finishes were also used.
The display area remains uncluttered with the
new pieces enhancing the existing boutique space
to create a warm, romantic and relaxed retail
experience that is unique in Perth.
