Viktoria and Woods Mosman by Golden

▲ This new retail space for Australian fashion label Viktoria and Woods in Mosman, Sydney is conceived as a spatial manifestat­ion of the label’s ethos for high-quality clothing in sustainabl­e fabrics. The fitout has been designed by Golden, whose signature aesthetic restraint is a fitting complement to the simple and modern aesthetic of Viktoria and Woods. The gallery-like interior balances a subdued colour palette with rich textures, which range from a monolithic counter of G-lux quartzite at the centre of the space to chrome shelving with woven Danish paper cord, custom-designed by James Howe. A coffered ceiling in the back draws the eye with its exaggerate­d geometry and strong contrast of light and shade. Angular lines and curved fluidity are highlighte­d with textural elements. The project expresses an understate­d sophistica­tion that is, the designers say, “quintessen­tially Sydney.”
