Pentagram Architect’s Lorenzo Apicella has designed a showroom for the footwear company Jimlar. Situated on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 56th Street, the showroom is ideally placed in the heart of New York’s luxury retail district. Apicella was able to overcome the challenges of a low ceiling and deep footprint to create a sophisticated showroom of seven private view galleries held together by a large central space that contains a reception area, a lounge and an island meeting room.
“The arced and canted walls and the subtle curves of the island meeting room were inspired by the spare lines of classic shoe designs”.
