Marni Las Vegas Store

Sybarite’s design for the Marni flagship at the Crystals in Las Vegas was inspired by the image of a cracking whip, seemingly suspended in mid-air as it unfurls. Defining the perimeter, this sinuous ‘lasso’ of stainless steel encircles the boutique, providing hanging space for the RTW collection. At one end it is anchored by the cash and wrap desk, and at the other it morphs into a sculptural wall inset with fibreglass shoe displays.

Painted smooth grey, the curving walls are broken up by an array bubbles in relief – randomly concave and convex, backlit and shadowed – which build up in textural composition. A selection of accessories are displayed in some of the recessed bubbles, enhancing the perception of value and uniqueness. Other sections of the perimeter contain backlit fibreglass display boxes and scattered throughout are suspended mannequin pieces in a mix of natural fibreglass and pearlescent purple lacquer, a new finish inspired by Marni’s latest accessories collection. Beyond the walls is space for fitting rooms, stock room and office.

Freestanding elliptical display tables, also in pearlescent purple, offer additional display surfaces and clusters of white PVC stools and soft grey wool rugs provide comfy seating. In the ceiling, giant Barrisol discs echo the bubble motif of the walls and cast soft diffuse light, while the polished concrete floor provides a clean backdrop. Similarly, the exterior treatment is minimalist. Rather than a conventional window display, a simple glass facade with a few hanging mannequins allows a clear view into the shop, putting the collection centre-stage to draw the attention of traffic from the busy escalators nearby.
