CLOSED headquarters, Hamburg, Interior Design

For the international fashion label Closed, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN completed the expansion of the headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. The 1,375 sqm space doubles the existing office area and integrates the company’s Online Services team and in-house photo studio.

Located in the residential neighbourhood of Eppendorf, the interior of the former tramway depot with typical 1890’s red brick façade was restructured to provide both workspaces and communal areas. On the ground floor, offices with glass walls are situated around an atrium space with greens, while an open office layout on the first floor generates a light-flooded working environment essential for a communal and creative atmosphere.

Focal point of the expanded space is the spacious restaurant and kitchen with double height ceilings. Contrasting the industrial architecture, solid oak dining tables and benches by David Chipperfield for e15 elegantly highlight simplicity and warmth.

CLOSED, Oldenburg, Interior Design

For international fashion label Closed, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN was commissioned to design the brand’s new store in Oldenburg. The 157 sqm space integrates with multi brand store Du Nord, also designed by the office, into a 373 sqm fashion and lifestyle destination in the heart of the city’s old town.

The interior and its high concrete ceilings reveal an impressive modern space arranged in a composition of intriguing presentation forms and spaces for men and women rendered in an original mix of colours and materials. Preserving the industrial character of the space, a thin black lighting system is silhouetted against the raw concrete as an informal contrast to the solid oak floor radiating warmth.

CLOSED, Paris, Interior Design

For the international fashion label Closed the first Paris flagship store has been completed, which showcases a unique artistic approach reflecting its location in the fashion metropolis Paris. This project marks the first development stage of a new generation of a store concept for Closed. Incorporating elements of the previous concept the 59 sqm store located in Paris’ popular shopping district Le Marais centres round a diverse set of cubes and rectangles – lit from inside. Enticing through their clear yet sculptural character, the geometric shapes provide for a variety of different presentation spaces for the collection as well as making up the changing rooms of the store. In relation to the concrete floor, the luxurious materials stainless steel, rich marble and coloured glass as well as the ceiling’s irregular pattern of neon tubes provide an intentional, exciting contrast, emphasising the elegant yet innovative and authentic character of the international fashion label Closed. A sliding coloured glass door allows insights into the storage and reflects the open and innovative character of the Closed brand.

Since 2004, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN has globally designed and realised all showroom and store spaces as well as most exhibition presentations for Closed and created a recognisable brand architecture for the international label.

CLOSED, Bread & Butter, Berlin, Exhibition Design

For the international fashion label Closed an exhibition design was realised in the space of the former editorial offices of Berlin’s famous city magazine “Tip Berlin” in the course of Berlin’s fashion show Bread & Butter in July 2013. The 550 sqm presentation on the ground floor of an Art Nouveau building was developed to exude an abstract character. Diverse and bespoken clothes racks with elements of coloured glass and mirror were created to present the new collection and underline the modern aesthetic of the fashion label. Cabinet tables made of black and white metal with elements of marble and brass as well as the bespoke clothes racks were used to structure the huge space into individual rooms and increased the abstract and geometric effect. An outside lounge area underlined the artistic event character of the exhibition.

In 2004, the collaboration with the Hamburg based fashion label Closed started with the realisation of the company’s first flagship store in downtown Hamburg. Since then, the fashion label commissioned the interior design of Closed stores and showrooms around the world with the briefing to establish a distinct global corporate architecture for the brand.

CLOSED, Hamburg, Interior Design

For fashion label Closed PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN was commissioned to redesign the brand’s first flagship store on Bergstrasse in Hamburg. Completed in March 2013, the 226 sqm interior is divided into a separate male and female space yet featuring an open interior design, having eliminated all interior walls. A large glass window front of the corner store allows for optimum use of daylight, resulting in a bright and airy interior and maximum use of display space to the exterior.

The redesign of the Hamburg flagship store features the brand new architectural concept whereby the space is created as a bright, airy and open interior with a number of new designed display units, providing for a combination of hanging and flat presentations. New central pieces are the steel-framed glass cabinets with built-in fluorescent lighting, open shelves from black lacquered wood veneer and a new black steel cabinet. The cool and artistic look is balanced by warm elements such as white marble tables, a signature wall in yellow as well as a free-standing wooden cabinet used for jewellery display. Grey oiled solid wooden floorboards and hanging space via thin, elegant black coat racks positioned along the walls over bench elements strengthen the overall appearance, expressing a modern and forward quality of the brand. With the new store concept a dynamic within the space is generated, encouraging the customer to move around the merchandise.

The redesign of the Hamburg flagship store reflects the continuation of the close and ongoing working relationship between the two companies. Since 2004, PHILIPP MAINZER has realised all showroom and store spaces as well as exhibitions for the international fashion brand and created a recognisable brand architecture for the label.

CLOSED, Gallery Nolin Judin, Berlin, Exhibition Design

For the international fashion brand Closed, an exhibition design at Nolin Judin Gallery was developed in the context of the fashion fair Bread & Butter 2013 in Berlin. A 275 sqm presentation with bespoke furniture was created, underlining the pure and innovative character of the fashion brand’s collection.

A black wooden catwalk was designed to meander through the space seeming to float above the bright floor and flanked by glass cabinets on both sides. The 2 m high custom-made cabinets, made from glass in a frame of powder-coated steel in umbra grey highlighted the men’s and women’s fashion in a distinct and progressive way. Illuminated from the bottom of the glass cabinets the garments obtained a weightless character, especially when presented lying on the glass surface of the pure cabinet tables. Completed by three different shapes of steel clothes racks, the clothing presentation was accentuated by painted curry-coloured walls, a sensitive ceiling illumination as well as beamer projections of CLOSED catwalk situations.

In 2004, the collaboration with the Hamburg based fashion label Closed started with the realisation of the company’s first flagship store in downtown Hamburg.
