Karir Eyewear has re-located a new flagship in First Canadian Place, Toronto, that brings an immersive architectural approach to the interior design brief. The retail experience is framed by pink textured lime plaster walls, evocative of both a Richard Sera sculpture and Stonehenge. These walls dive inside and outside of the mall glazing, seemingly ignoring the confines of a conventional lease space. This pink enclosure dances between providing an alluring object of desire and also an intimate enclosure in which to make a personal purchase. Breaks in the circle and changes in height offer refined views into the space.
