'Colorfoto' grew and needed a Megastore. We tried to organize the space in a large and clean way, trying to show the extent of the store despite the various occurrences.

The floor and ceiling, both in white, contrast with the battery of cabinets which coat the walls, designed so as to serve not only for storage but also as exhibitors of various products.

By the entrance, in blue, the front desk rhymes with light boxes that occasionally are open on the ceiling.

On the outside, the logo is all over. By simplifying the image the storefronts were solved. In a matured design, as if it were a lacy, it is endlessly repeated in a double glass cloth, slightly delayed, creating a pattern that moves when we move.

Several boxes are then opened, in this almost abstract spot, which reveals to us, as viewers, the interior of the store in a framed way.
