Toms is an international brand which has a very unique and strong identity, both on it’s concept and the store designs. Thessaloniki’s store is also very unique by itself, as it located in an old classical building which survives its interior beauty and atmosphere. A very impressive patio which allows daylight into the store, makes this place special and very matching to a Toms store.
The bespoke lights were designed with respect to the brand’s identity, the architects’ interior proposal and the architecture of the building itself. Metal is used as a basic material, in order the lights not to stand out as units, on the contrary, to be totally embodied to the store’s environment, and together to be adding some “sweet raw “style to it. Their design was also inspired by a playful spirit, to match with Toms “giving” and “happy” mood.
