Glossier Seattle

2020 Permanent Retail

Glossier Seattle looked to the natural landscapes of the Pacific Northwest for inspiration and in the fascinating world of mushrooms. Fungi have an astonishing ability to grow and thrive in the most unlikely places and we wanted to bring that phenomenon in our design. Visitors are invited on a journey through moss covered rocks and gigantic oversized mushrooms that pierce through the store’s foundation. The scenic elements, designed to immerse the visitors in a Willy Wonka-esque environment, pierce through the floor of the illuminated atrium, inspired by the peristyle courtyards of ancient Greece. Nuanced, sleek details compliment the space through the use of rosy glass-tiled arches, troweled plaster, and fluorescent light fixtures inspired by Le Corbusier’s La Tourette.
