Carbon Delhi

Carbon Delhi is the last of the trilogy (refer Carbon Bangalore, Carbon Hyderabad) of retail containers for fashion accessories, located on the third floor of a mall in Delhi.

The Carbon Delhi’s unique design challenges were by accident – the store initially thought to be 15’ high between floor and ceiling ended up having 3 different heights between front and rear due to unplanned services. A ceiling made of three different folded planes was arrived at from these 3 points. Then it was a process of folding the planes of varying sizes to form a cave-like structure made of aluminum composite panel. A grid of lighting was layered to reinforce this composition. The point of sale was the starting point of these folds and an extension of these made for counters on the remaining floor space. The point of sale was defined as a perfect geometry and treated black in contrast to the folding white planes.
