Borrowed Light

The store, designed for a high-end chain nail brand store MEET NAIL, is located in Shanghai along the Xuhui Riverside. The basement floor serves as the outdoor setting, and there is not much lighting. 

As a result, the initial design concept was derived from the notion of "borrow light" from diverse angles as much as possible to enhance the amount of indoor light.

8877 Interiors chose the design theme as "Light In The Views". The space design is primarily represented by the utilisation of the angled corners on the facade, roof, wall, and ground to create multiple various three-dimensional perspective of various structures, and combining lighting and natural light to plan the limited space.

Functionalization Scenario

The widescreen light strip in the middle of the top of the interior separates the left and right sides by sloping the roof inward, skillfully using the advantage of the height of the space, optimizing the proportion of the top and bottom structure of the space and showing the structural richness in a layering approach.

According to the functional regional requirements of the brand, the inside space divided into six sections. 

In order not to interfere with the use of lighting, the plexiglass partitions are installed in the reception desk and waiting area, while the folded corners of the walls are used to divide the remaining section.

This unusual substance has a distinctive surface roughness and is mainly composed of recycled plastic and stone particles.

The studio preferred to use Amber Brown as the main color of the space, as the color is peaceful and pleasant overall. At night, when paired with the widescreen, multicolored light strip, a unique and upscale environment is created.
