“Sabz has asked 5.5 designers to design the interior of their new store dedicated to outdoor furniture. They drew from the topographic language the scenic writing of the place.
From the street, a vine arbour of metal leaves, welcomes the visitor to guide him all along the route. As a foliage climbing, like a Virginia creeper, this sign takes the customers towards the various spaces which compose the showroom.
For the display of the collections of chairs and to emphasize the books of the bookshop, 5.5 designers used the longest wall to settle a display stand shelves which evoke the curves of levels of a topographic plan. On the ground, these curves are used to create different area of presentation. Furniture display stands use the geologic vocabulary in the form of strata stacked.
At the ground floor and at the 1st floor, the visitor crosses various sections dedicated to accessories, to packaging (jars, tubs, gardeners), and different mise-en-scene where one find, associated between them, the various typologies of furniture and accessories. Under the glass roof, a taproom allows to sit down and to take time to define in complete peace and in a friendly way the projects of arrangement. Near, a screen illustrates the realizations conceived by Sabz and a material room presents a selection of materials proposed within the framework of outdoor installation.
In all the store, interactive information terminals allow to inquire in a intuitive way about products.
Outside, in the garden designed by Sabz, are exposed barbecues and outdoor kitchens, the furniture in situation as well as games for the children. In the floor, lamps are plunged in an artificial night, to express their qualities in functioning.
More than a commercial place, Sabz is a universe dedicated to the new “casual”, relaxed spirit and without borders. An atmosphere in which we like meeting without way, but which does not exclude a touch of sophistication. This universe integrates the outside as a room to be lived and pushes the walls of the house towards the outside.”
