Text description provided by the architects. MUNICH, the Barcelona based fashion- and sports footwear brand opens a shop in Ireland. Carrying on with its expansion plan, the brand has chosen this country to make its international gate with its first shop in the shopping mall Kildare Village.
DEAR DESIGN created this 60 m2 space following the design spirit that characterises all MUNICH STORES: art and design in every shop. The interior evokes a warm and comfortable feeling to make the client feel at home. To achieve this effect, the studio used simple and everyday materials, such as the fireproof MUNICH shoelaces. More than 67 km of red shoelaces wrap and furnish the room. The shoelaces are spread over the ceiling, taking form of a traditional roof and dropping like pendulums.
To complete this very clean design of forms and materials, Dear Design relied on padded green fabric for the cash desk, shelves, sofa and walls, recalling the green hills and mountains of Ireland. This unique design is combined with LED-based lighting, chosen to reduce energy consumption, according to the brand's commitment to the environment.
