Åhléns City, Stockholm

This shop-in-shop has a clearly defined acne area inside the Åhléns department store. The opening along the length of the shop has a wall segment punctured by a door sized slither of toxic fluorescent glass. A brave material and color scheme with distinct boundaries helps to clarify the Acne Studios space. Flocked wall panels and a cash desk stretches along the greater length of the shop. Garments hang in clusters in the central space upon generic wheeled stainless steel racks. The entire space sits upon a soft wool carpet.

Bozarthfornell is an office for architecture and design, founded 2010 by Andreas Bozarth Fornell. The office has a diverse portfolio and works within all different fields of architecture but the main focus so far is within the world of fashion retail. The people at Bozarthfornell have diverse backgrounds, something that we utilise in alternate ways for every different project.

We strongly believe that architecture and design is an art form. It gives strength and confidence to the individual as well as business corporations. This synthesis of concept, beauty and function completely absorbs our attention in every project. Our architectural vision derives its expression from the art world. It’s inspired by our travels and influenced by the pop-culture that surrounds us daily. It is intimately connected to both context and function.
