A dreamy vintage space

Data Pubblicazione: 30 June 2017

The space is in a striking location next to the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, in a historic 6-story building with a private terrace on the upper level.

 

The new flagship store of Etnia Barcelona, with an area of 800 m2, is a ‘temple’ of the brand that evokes the interiors of the houses in this city. The renovation of the building has been done by Jordi Tió, while the furnishings and interiors are by the design studio Lázaro Rosa Violán.

 

The space features works of art and elements salvaged from historic eyewear stores to create a dreamy vintage atmosphere, where the furnishings and lighting have a Forties theme.

 

The store also offers books by artists and photographers to underscore the brand’s ties to the art world.
