“TWISTED_CLASSICS” refers to the homonym clothing brand, located in the heart of Athens. The Basic characteristics of the brand are, the very inspirational patterns/textures used for the clothes ,deigned by the owner, the particular style of the clothes inspired by different époques, as well as the idea of the ‘atelier’ service, allowing the clients to alter and adjust their clothes as they like!.
Initial objective was the planning of a space capable to correspond to the multiple needs of the designer, supporting the quality and the style of clothing in the most efficient way. Having as datum a small united space, we selected the creation of a central piece furniture, leaving free space peripherally for the projection of clothing. The furniture was drawn specifically for this space, in order to accommodate most of the display units as well as a worktop area, seats and storage. The furniture is constituted by two pieces with influences from the 70's and the period of Art Nouveau. The morphological elements of each season were observed explicitly, grey coloration was the method for unification of the two.
‘Through’ the peripheral walls runs a distressed white continuous pipe which functions as a hanger for the clothes. The walls are painted in neutral nuances to function as canvas for the projection of clothes that are characterized by intense drawing patterns.
