neri & hu outfits flagship store for comme moi in shanghai

design and research office neri & hu has completed a flagship store for comme moi, situated inside shanghai’s art deco donghu hotel. the design team sought to retain traces of the structure’s varied history, which has seen multiple renovations and changes in program. consequently, the design adds another layer of intrigue, with inserted elements that seek to embody the brand’s young yet sophisticated aesthetic.

neri & hu organized the layout as a series of four sequential chambers with retail spaces connected with a continuous rail that also forms the armature for custom designed hanging cabinets. these showcasing units are sheathed in a metallic mesh that allows them to stand out against the interior’s historic architectural surroundings.

unifying the space, a terrazzo floor occasionally extrudes upwards to form sculptural zones such as the reception counter and areas of seating. guided by the metal rails and continuous flooring, visitors are able to meander freely through the various chambers before ending their journey at a lounge area.
