创意二人组Giada Forte和Robert Vattilana为这家在伦敦西部开业的时尚精品店设计了室内装饰，使用了粘土砖、缟玛瑙和长毛绒天鹅绒等材料。
Clay bricks, onyx and plush velvet are just some of the materials that creative duo Giada Forte and Robert Vattilana have used for the interior of this fashion boutique, which has opened in west London.
Forte Forte位于伦敦富裕的切尔西街区，用一系列材料装饰，旨在提供“连续的触觉和视觉感受”。这家两层楼的精品店出售一系列高端女装和配饰，由该品牌的联合创始人Giada Forte和她的合伙人，创意总监Robert Vattilana设计。
Located in London’s affluent Chelsea neighbourhood, Forte Forte has been decked out in a medley of materials that are meant to offer a “succession of tactile and visual sensations”.The two-floor boutique – which sells a selection of high-end womenswear and accessories – was designed by the brand’s co-founder, Giada Forte, and her partner, creative director Robert Vattilana.
Red clay bricks have been used to line a majority of surfaces on the shop’s ground floor. In some areas the bricks are laid flat, while in others they’ve been stacked horizontally and vertically to create an almost pixelated surface effect.To add a “surprising touch to the visual and chromatic melody”, a handful of finely-cracked turquoise ceramic bricks have been dotted across the wall, as well as some gold-leaf blocks.
The bricks go on to appear in the outdoor courtyard, which lies at the back of the store. At its centre is a Japanese maple tree.”[The trees] changing of leaves during the year marks the alternation of the seasons, adding to the dimension of time in the space,” Forte and Vattilana explained.
Brass – which Forte and Vattilana say is part of their “material grammar” – has been used to craft several fixtures in the store, including the wiry clothing rails, organically shaped mirrors and ultra-thin treads on the stairs.Grey ceppo lombardo stone has been used to create a chunky service-counter and the base of greenery-filled planters. A block of pale-yellow onyx also forms the first step of the staircase.A couple of sculptural armchairs and chaise-longues have been added to bring a more domestic feel to the space, as well as a couple of paintings and postcards from far-flung destinations.
