Upon entering Repossi’s steely Parisian jewellery box, what is immediately clear is that this is a retail store like no other. Donald Judd furniture is placed in-situ. Linear display cases are cut from reflective slats that rotate like high-tech vertic.
Speaking of entryways, (or back entries, in the case above) maximize style in small spaces with stenciled or papered walls in a large pattern. This overscale wall covering (Michael Devine's Fretwork) is reminiscent of latticework.
