Chuo-Ku, Osaka

A long stainless steel passage and speckled terrazzo floor are halted by the diagonal geometry of a fleshy pink stairwell in this double story store’s entry. Strong perpendicular ceiling blades and fluorescent lighting grid pull visitors from the corridor into the ground floor shop space where garments and accessories sit neatly in stainless steel cases placed upon soft, powdery pink carpets. Upstairs, the pink stairwell and carpets are accentuated by light blue and white terrazzo flooring while perforated aluminium screens creative additional depth.

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.
