The 400 sq ft store of Four­sight at NOIDA’s sec­tor 18 mar­ket goes on to make for a vis­ual re­treat be­sides of­fer­ing vi­sion ac­ces­sories. Delhi-based De­sign Ra­di­ance has de­signed the store that’s truly unique and im­pact­ful.

With lead­ing on­line eye­wear brands on a brick-and-mor­tar slew, stand­alone eye­wear store chains are geared up with more vi­su­allyap­peal­ing store pres­ence. The lat­est to join the band­wagon is Four­sight. With two stores in NOIDA it­self, one at a mall lo­ca­tion and an­other at a high street lo­ca­tion, Four­sight wanted to stay away from the use of wood in the store de­sign of the lat­est one spanned across 400 sq ft. “You step into any vi­sion store and there’s a gen­er­ous use of wood in the store de­sign. Hence, we de­lib­er­ately stayed away from it. De­sign Ra­di­ance sug­gested iron as the main el­e­ment amongst many and we de­cided to go with it,” said Aasim Rah­man, Di­rec­tor, Four­sight. Lo­cated on a high street with an ex­ist­ing shop, the store al­ready had frame­less glass fas­cia with front cladded in alu­minum com­pos­ite panel and gran­ite floor. “We spiced it up with paver stone in front and ex­ist­ing Alu­minum cladding was fin­ished in ham­mer-tone paint. For the ceil­ing and sig­nage back­drop, we had As­bestos roof­ing sheet,” Anand added.

Aasim Rehman, Di­rec­tor, Four­sight, Go­ing be­yond the typ­i­cal de­sign phi­los­o­phy of op­ti­cal stores, metal was cho­sen as main el­e­ment and more stronger lights have been used. We also dis­carded the idea of hav­ing a win­dow as the lo­ca­tion doesn’t have high traf­fic. Rather we spaced the stair­case well as it de­manded more com­fort.
