Briefly introduce the concept behind the Ali Chocolate Boutique’s interior.
Project design started from the premises of zoning. We decided to divide the room into 3 zones on both sides of the predicted areas for visitors, and in the middle of their service area. High tables predicted a short stay, and places with armchairs opposite – a longer stay. Purposefully unscrew treats showcase the mall corridor to the flow of visitors. We took galleries mood and colors that bring more attention to the treats. It also introduced a gold mirror reflection, mood diversify.
What were the most important aspects? What has been addressed?
Most attention has been devoted to showcase piece of furniture, for formation of inclined columns and lighting. In other words -to objects that formed the area – made it extraordinarily.

White-painted metal, furniture panel and cast stone.
And finally, the space attracts the customers by the interesting choice of light. Can You tell us about the Lighting Solutions for the interior?
The interior is dominated by a more technical light. For the accents, we decided to make an opening in the wall of LED lights, and a large golden light over the service area.
