Minimalism for New Delhi retail store
New Delhi-based Joint Studio has designed Antar Agni, which is a retail store for a clothing brand. It strives to be a space that blends tranquility and aesthetics, reminding one of a breath of fresh air. The design philosophy revolves around a minimalist approach with warm and earthy colors to create a soothing ambiance.
Minimalism and simplicity are thus carefully displayed with clean lines and the absence of unnecessary embellishments, allowing one to focus on the essentials. This ensures that complete attention is centered on the product, fostering a heightened appreciation for its inherent qualities. Each element is curated to maintain the delicate balance between visual appeal and emotional comfort.
The conscious use of natural elements adds a tactile dimension to the design and establishes a grounded connection with the environment. Curved walls are a distinguishing feature of the project, which brings fluidity and organic charm to the space. The absence of harsh edges visually extends the space’s boundaries, forming a functional approach. These contours maintain dynamism by allowing movement and rhythm within the design for an inviting and spacious look—simple flooring with bricks adds to the brand’s textural palette.
Expansive glass doors open the space to the natural sunlight, amplifying the colors, visually expanding the space, and bringing in a welcoming nature. Warm, soft lighting creates an inviting glow, highlighting key areas and adding depth to the design.
