A play on opposites

 

Present throughout the new store is Joseph’s signature design details: strong geometric lines and a play on opposites – black and white, masculine and feminine. This signature style is evident in the black line that draws the eye around the store, like a brush stroke taking the customer on a curated journey throughout the space, framing the clothes and providing a strong geometry in contrast to the clothes which sit on white shelves or hang from white rails. The signature black line also travels into the ceiling cutouts which create grand geometric gestures through the lighting trenches.  Large stretched ‘Barrisol’ LED lighting areas to lift the space to heighten the sensory experience and create a warm ambient light that is complemented by cooler spotlights, the combination of which creates an atmospheric and attractive light scenario for the clothes and the customer.

Cultural references

 

In addition to the Joseph signature style, each store always incorporates a cultural reference and sensitivity to its location – be it in Singapore, London or Miami.For the Miami store, Sybarite was inspired by Miami’s iconic architecture from the 40s and 50s – grand gestures such as circular balconies, spiral staircases, and curved balcony railings. These architectural references inspired Sybarite to design the giant black corkscrew staircase which provides a central feature, juxtaposing the existing industrial steelwork framing of the store and complemented by polished concrete floors.  This is the first time a curved element has been incorporated into a Joseph store design. At first glance, the corkscrew staircase is uniformly black but as you enter the staircase and you start to ascend it, you discover beautiful white polished marble treads – another play on materials and opposites. On reaching the first floor – home to menswear and accessories –  the staircase becomes more transparent, with a smoked black glass balustrade.

Overall the Miami store concept creates a dramatic gallery space, with the clothes on show and the bold staircase forming an architectural sculpture in its own right.  The gallery concept is further supported by a series of plinths sitting on an inlaid brass chessboard made from various materials such as OSB, brass, and black Corian.  The plinths are designed to showcase accessories such as bags and shoes and act as a teaser for the store concept but without dominating the visual sight lines of the rest of the space. On the ground floor, at the end of the store the till point is formed from a huge piece of beautiful Italian green marble (Onice Smeraldo). This is also a signature style within the Joseph concept, with each Joseph store using a different marble from around the world, creating monolithic gestures to evoke a naturalness, a hard beauty and depth to it but within this very geometric landscape.

 


“Joseph really understand their customer and we understand our client, having now worked with them on over 50 stores. Our designs for Joseph are based on opposites and the unexpected to provide a complete brand experience for the customer.”

In contrast to the store’s palette of core materials of marble, concrete, brass and Corian, Sybarite used rich shearlings, velvet upholstery and luxurious carpet in the fitting rooms and seating areas on both the ground and first floors. The textures, architecture and palette, although contrasting in nature, provide a binding foundation for the uniformity of Joseph’s ever-evolving sartorial language.
