Wood, Concrete and Metal contrast one another in the design of the new Hardware Showroom, owned by Nimit Dhiraj Shah, in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Designed by Amogh Designs, this hardware store is an epitome of minimalism. The design approach was driven by an aspiration to create an easy transition, sequential display and appealing ambience, which can comprise maximum products. The clients chose to keep the showroom raw yet alluring.
The idiosyncratic synchronization of shades and materials is the first eye-catcher while stepping onto the threshold. When you go in, you can easily notice a huge art piece, exquisitely crafted by the owner of the showroom with the help of waste or the items sold in the store, installed on the metal bars. It amplifies the elegance of the entrance area.
The Main Entrance With Reception Desk on the Right Side
On the right of the main entrance is a reception area, which perfectly reflects the theme by use of micro concreting in contrast to polished wooden bands. At the entry, circular neo mint presentation with succeeding shelves – showing high-end products is a cynosure. There is a wooden display panel with black metal framing run parallel to both side of walls, showcasing a various range of handles.
Side passage towards modular kitchen display
Adjoining to that, columns are articulated with panels, exhibiting various channels through a French and glass door. At the centre of the store, there are several vertical metal shelves installed around wooden post showing auto locks. A rotating display triangle followed by a sitting area in the centre where a partition acts both as a wall and a display panel goes in harmony with the design.
Meeting area/sitting space for customers
There are high-end kitchen displays in the third section of the showroom. Charcoal grey and white quartz are beautifully combined in the first kitchen display to give it a natural, clean and contemporary look. Whereas the other island kitchen features the conceal chimney with wooden finish and black quartz countertops. The third kitchen display has charcoal grey, tinted glass, black Neolithic and wooden finishes.
Display of economic range modular kitchen opt-2 & premium kitchen opt-1
All the display panels are complemented with neo mint low height cabinet. And the showroom appears bigger than its actual size because of its depth, magnificent design and striking mix of colours. To complement the theme and products, black micro concreting is done on the flooring. Whereas the grey texture of ceiling and wall gives a subtle backdrop to all the elements and products.
