Interpreting the essence of a brand is not easy, especially if it is an emblematic firm like Lladró, a global leader in luxury artistic porcelain and an international reference.

This has been the task of the Carmen Baselga studio, collaborating with the retail team of the porcelain firm.

The first concept store dedicated to Lladró’s most innovative products.

The space, located in the Meatpacking District – 435 W. 14th Street – offers a unique shopping experience focused on facilitating people’s interaction with the product, and bringing the knowledge of Lladró’s artisanal processes closer to visitors through virtual technological experiences.

The interior design structures the space through a sequence of ten immersive scenes that draw the viewer into an extraordinary universe.

“All of them seek to establish a dialogue between the visitor and the product in a visual, sound, tactile and olfactory conversation,” said designer Carmen Baselga.

Transgressing the norm of a static relationship between observer and product, movement is generated through changes in light intensity, the use of screens that function as backdrops and sounds that immerse visitors in another reality, taking them away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Shapes and colours are also differentiating elements of the interior design project.

Playing with perspective, seeking a sensation of depth of field through modular divisions of unfinished circles, the whole of which, seen from the entrance, is reminiscent of the diaphragm of an analogue camera. This invites the visitor to walk through the space, evoking atmospheres of fantasy and dreamlike architecture.

Giocare con la prospettiva, ricercare una sensazione di profondità di campo attraverso divisioni modulari di cerchi non finiti, il cui insieme, visto dall’ingresso, ricorda il diaframma di una macchina fotografica analogica. Questo invita il visitatore a percorrere lo spazio, evocando atmosfere di fantasia e architetture oniriche.

The client thus passes through enveloping spaces that lead them to learn all the secrets of the brand, and even to travel from New York to Lladró’s workshops in Valencia, its only factory in Spain, so that they can delve into its meticulous artisan process.

These geometries create a clean context and promote a sense of visual harmony. This is further enhanced by the chosen colour palete, which includes pastel shades such as sage green in combination with a salmon pink and a sandy tone as a binder. The aim is, above all, to enhance the prominence of the products on display, some of them conceived by designers of the stature of Jaime Hayon, Marcel Wanders or the Mexican Olga Hanono.
