Qiora Store and Spa
A lantern on Madison Avenue, our design of Qiora’s flagship store and spa is a dramatic spatial experience that embodies the brand’s identity.
Meaning “light from within,” Qiora is a brand of skincare products made by Shiseido Cosmetics. Our design features the diffusion of light through layered fabric to create a glowing interior space. Qiora’s lighting is a blend of warm and cool light that are programmed to gradually shift over time, evoking the sensation of a cloud passing over the sun.
Blue organza fabric veils suspend from 20-foot high ceilings, defining the visual and tactile boundaries between the retail, treatment areas, and spa cabins. Dyed milky white, aqua, and darker blues, these layered veils create a lit dreamscape of blue organza around the round spa cabins. They draw the eye further into the space, and create a soothing, ethereal aura to refresh visitors.
