The store showcases collections from the world’s best fashion houses while feeling like a large living room filled with treasures.
Feelings of tension and opposition are central to Faradays’ success; luxury without rawness felt like opulence without context. Sculpted canvas felt like a fitting pairing for the richly textured old building shell, raw in its material but refined in its geometry.
Canvas is inherently soft, but here it is held taut, then slashed like a Fontana work and peeled apart to reveal carefully curated displays; its shaped form creating little nooks and niches for people to retreat into.
We made almost everything in the space; the plinths, ottomans, change room mirrors, dining tables, light fittings and even the curtain clips. All these pieces are set against the soft neutral backdrop of the fabric surface, acting as a thread that ties together luxury and rawness, the machine-made and the hand-crafted.
