The store design developed for Preciseoptics has been inspired by the sculptural work of Anish Kapoor and aimed to illustrate the cpacity of a typical wall of seamlessly evolving to a more elaborate shape; on an aesthetically but also functional level.
Architect Dimitris Tsigos developed the concept together with the client inspired by elements of shape and morph that can be witnessed across the Cycladic terrain where traditional methods of housing construction blend in with the sculpted landscape.
Anyone who has visited Mykonos has probably been seduced by an aesthetic of a similar genre: due to local techniques and traditional ways of construction, geometric volumes smoothly morph into one another in a very similar way Kapoor’s sphere morphs onto the wall.
A design project has been developed that respects and acknowledges the traditional myconian environment and blends harmoniously into it, but at the same time is contemporary enough to be an appropriate surface to display the high-end merchandise that the Preciseoptics brand is known for.
