Four organic, internally lit, framed fabric light features with integrated area lighting, float beneath dramatic, 28 foot ceilings in this upscale retail store. The goal was functional lighting that doubled as a stunning sculpture. The store glows fuchsia, its iconic brand color, and the structures pulse color from within, using pre-programmed LED lights. A smaller store opened in Rome where the grand light features were replaced with fuchsia-framed, fabric change rooms. The Las Vegas store won ISP/VM&SD Store of the Year in 2004 and NASFM’s Excellence in Retail Design Grand Prize award in 2005.
