Flowing from the past
Carlo Pazolini, the new innovation by Giorgio Borruso Design, offers a unique store experience in a store environment that recreates the old charm of the historical Brompton Arcade.
Located on Brompton Road, Knightsbridge in London, Carlo Pazolini is a 120 sq.m. store housing men's and women's shoes and accessories that launches the new Carlo Pazolini worldwide store concept. Designed by the Los Angeles based Giorgio Borruso Design firm, this newly created store draws its concept inspiration from the historical Brompton Arcade. “While exploring the history of the area and the building, from the early 1900's, it was discovered in planning archives that the neighboring historical Brompton Arcade was converted into a retail space in the last decade, installing a new roof structure and remodeled mezzanine. So, our design sought to recognize the memory of this arcade by recreating a contemporary barrel or tunnel vault ceiling as well as the illusion via a mirror wall that the space opens to the exterior at the back,” explains Giorgio Borruso
