Utility is an independent retailer selling designer furniture, lighting, homeware and gifts. They had a well-established online presence, and stores already open in Liverpool. We designed Utility's fourth store in Manchester, and through the use of a muted colour and material palette we created a modern, simplistic look with warm and inviting tones. Fixtures were made from sleek steel frames, paired with birch-faced plywood shelves and pegboard wall panels which lend the space a softer, natural feel.
"The Manchester store heavily features gifts and homewares, carefully selected with quality, style and design at the forefront. We made sure that these three principles were reflected in our design, creating a contemporary environment which conveys style whilst promoting the products themselves, ensuring they are the hero."
