Selected Works


GLOSSIER BROOKLYN

Glossier Brooklyn draws inspiration from the raw materials and corner-store details found in the surrounding neighborhoods. Combining a raw, wood veneer–developed and popularized by Ettore Sottsass–with plush, textured fabrics and futuristic finishes creates a contrast that represents the brand’s aesthetic with more regionally-inspired motifs. Referencing bright, colorful candy shops and bodega counters, the maximalist display shelves show rows of colorful products with glass panes allowing customers to the “inner workings” of the store. The exterior incorporates molding details and benches that bring a familiar, nostalgic feel to the block. Curved, metal window mullions and a blue conveyor belt that delivers orders to customers add a factory-espe feel without feeling overly industrial.

GLOSSIER DISPLAY DESIGN SYSTEM

The patented Glossier product testing system was developed as a design solution for creating a scalable, intuitive way to try products and provide supplemental information to the customer. The wavy surface has a specific radius and depth as to fit the majority of Glossier’s products, and is designed as a fail-safe method of organization and alignment, keeping the merchandising clean and pefectly spaced without constant maintenance. Made from recycled post-industrial plastics, the material used for this system is 100% recyclable.

GLOSSIER LONDON

Located in the oldest building in Covent Garden dating back to the 17th century, the townhouse-turned-beauty-store draws inspiration from the historic details of its surroundings and the classical ornamentation of the structure's original interior. Guests are welcomed into a 20-foot high grand foyer layered with soft fabrics and undulating marble. Playfully marrying the modern and the historic, high-gloss perforated metal veils the traditional moulding, allowing the original details to remain visible.

GLOSSIER SEATTLE

Glossier Seattle looked to the natural landscapes of the Pacific Northwest for inspiration and in the fascinating world of mushrooms. 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.

As a functioning market during the day, the space was created over the course of three nights, using the weeks before to source authentic props and scenic elements that created a dystopian, bladerunner-esque atmosphere.
