hardline specialty store
Van Cleef and
Open spaces, curved forms, and a gold-and-white color scheme
create an Art Deco look that’s thoroughly 21st century. Rooted in
the 1930s, when the store first opened in New York, the design is
infused with geometric shapes, decorative patterns, and smooth
lines. A circular staircase covered in faceted brass and enclosed
in glass, jewelry displayed in oversized glass bells on round and
oval tables with internally illuminated bases, geometric light fixtures, and dramatically coffered ceilings establish the aesthetic.
The scale of the pieces, hidden plugs and wires, and state-of-the-art electronic display locks are up to the moment.
