We aimed to reflect holistic wellbeing in our design of a new retail outlet for Oil Science in Century Village Shopping Centre, Cape Town. Drawing on the amber colour of the oil products and a palette of soft, neutral shades, we created a soothing and inviting environment. Incorporating natural materials and plants in the design not only embodies health and wellness but alludes to the quality of the client’s organic product offering. The clean, modern space highlights the product, but has an intimate feel. Visual interest is achieved through geometric lines, softened by curves and circular shapes. The lighting serves a functional and decorative purpose, and the circular shape of the clear glass lights evokes images of science lab equipment, while echoing the company’s focus on transparency and purity of product.
