When it comes to retail environments, exclusive products deserve exclusive displays. Products demand the most exquisite lighting, showcased using luxurious fabrics and indulgent materials. To create the ultimate high-end experience for the customer, designers must look beyond the ordinary and challenge everyday perceptions.
For design and architect practice, Humbert & Poyet, this ethos is nothing new. Providing a full range of services from construction through to interior design, their company’s philosophy embodies high-end workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Their latest retail projects include Monaco’s Wine Palace and a butcher shop called The Butcher Shop – both exude luxury through lavish fabrics and complementary materials, sharp glass display casings and elegant lighting installations.
