The initial brief called for the design to stay true to the originally selected colour and finishes – black, brass and timber. To infuse a layer of individualism and creativity, S2DIO-X Architects cleverly incorporated the ‘light + strong’ concept behind the iconic Samsonite slogan. 

Starting with the timber flooring, Havwoods EP124 Hawthorn from the Urban living range, provided the perfect foundation to build upon the ‘light + strong’ concept. We see black and gold metal finishes alongside a midnight inspired ceiling and feature wall, all of which beautifully complement the timber finishes. Myriad mirrors artfully placed throughout the store, delicately reflect light and create the impression of a larger and more inviting space.

When asked whether he enjoyed working with Havwoods, Justin, from S2DIO-X Architects responded with ‘120% YES!’
