Alexander Wang - Global
Excerpt from superfuture.com / Beijing Sanlitun:
The store measures a grand 565 sqm. The design of the retail space is a collab of Wang and Paris-based Architect Joseph Dirand, and in terms of aesthetics it's pretty much an extrapolation of the New York flagship store's sleek concept, featuring a strong focus on raw materials with an emphasis on marble and bronze used in sculptural statements.
Except for a 1950s vintage De Sede black leather sofa on the ground level, all furniture and fixtures are customized, such as the blackened bronze bars, infinity tables of marble plates framed in blackened bronze, and a concrete sofa with goat hair and a leather ottoman with straps.
