Viennese moms and dads have yet another option to spoil their offspring: Bambini in central Vienna at Tuchlauben 7.

The interior of the 360 sqm multi-level emporium of children’s high-end fashion was entirely custom-designed by the 12-year-old Viennese firm, Architektur Denis Kosutic, for the Vienna-based MB Fashion GmbH.

Denis Kosutic and collaborators Mareike Kuchenbecker and Carina Haberl took a Wizard-of-Oz/Alice-in-Wonderland/Jules Verne approach yet cooled the usual color riot of kiddie stores down into a junior film noir environment.

With smoky grey as the main hue, the space is both imaginatively fun and slightly scary. There are surprises and details that don’t quite match, which makes the space interesting and fun, yet keeps the tone down at a tolerable level.

Cage-like pillars made of copper tubing create the central merchandise displays and evoke a feeling of retro-futuristic submarine vehicles.

Also custom-designed are the friezes of mushrooms, lollipops and pears, and seating shaped like bananas, strawberries, lemons and plums.
