London designers Doshi Levien have completed a Rome store for shoe brand Camper with faceted lighting clusters and a cash desk shaped like an old-fashioned television.

Shoes are displayed on stepped marble surfaces, against a background of blue and red.

Here's a little bit more text from Doshi Levien:


Eternal Summer / Camper shop. Via Baullari 18, Rome.

Our shop concept is inspired by the earthy, sun baked, solid architectural elements of the Mediterranean.

It has an authentic, monolithic simplicity of materials, with magical highlights.

It references the idea of an ETERNAL SUMMER and playfully re-appropriates everyday architectural and interior elements of the Mediterranean.

Marble steps, the water fountain in the Piazza, the ceiling fans in cafés, the sun faded colours of buildings, the flash of a bright neon light, a bright red dress or shoe, television watched outdoors by a neighbourhood together.

It feels like a shop that has been there forever; solid, sturdy, using materials that can be touched and washed.

Yet it is quirky; a rotating zoetrope in the window with animations entices you into the shop. The shoes have pride of place going up and down marble steps. Measure your feet on tiles by the floor.

Neon eyes watch over you. A mirrored fan gently cools the air and transforms itself according to the space.

Funny mirrors that take you by surprise by distorting your body proportions, defying pre-conceived notions of a perfect body! Making us laugh at ourselves and our vanity.

    Really Nice, but I never understand why Campers stores are so cool while their actual products are so ugly.

    I think along the same lines, except it's more like "Why are their stores always so ugly, when the products are that expensive?"

    That's called the power of marketing!
