The space is entirely customisable, offering dynamic arrangements for product presentations, pop-up events, beauty services and video shoots.

German practice Batek Architekte combined pale surfaces with concrete and steel accents to draw customer’s attention to the products on offer in this beauty store in central Berlin.

All surfaces have then been completed in a shade of off-white, offering a neutral backdrop for the products on show.

Textural interest is offered by the peripheral walls, which have been clad in fluted metal, and eggshell-coloured tables and stool seats made from concrete.

Freely placeable stainless steel cubes are perfect for ad-hoc zoning, curated product showcasing and presentations. A long shelf, crafted by Smile Plastics from recycled plastic cups, draws the eye and serves as the showcase highlight.

Central to the front retail area is an imposing solid concrete wash basin for customer use.

At the centre of the store sits three large, oval shelving units backed with mirrors to give the illusion of more space. These can be swivelled to partially conceal the room’s rear or create a more open-plan feel.

Drawing the eye to the back of the space is the four metre long stainless steel beauty service table, with retractable mirrors. Privacy comes from a movable curtain made from light fabric.

The low-key colour concept of cream, light beige, and grey to nude and natural shades, in harmony with the cement bonded industrial flooring and special, daylight reproducing high colour index lighting, together create a gallery environment ideal for presenting exquisite beauty products.

Suspended accent lights from PSLab sprinkle warm atmosphere throughout.
