Retail Gulf: Stone cold luxury at Dubai store

14 : 07 : 2013 Concrete : Concrete Interior : Artisanal Food

Dubai – Dubai has opened Mahani, the first concept store in the emirate, offering a curated selection of fashion, food, art and magazines in a brutal but harmonious concrete retail environment.

Conceived as an ‘antidote to the polished slickness of modern retail in the [United Arab] Emirates’, Mahani offers shoppers world-class retail design that embraces rough edges and an organic approach to form and texture. The shop’s interiors, designed by London-based Studio Toogood, combine raw concrete walls and flooring with Geo Luxe detailing such as porous stone benches, marbleised table tops and florid, gem-toned stools.

Beyond its distinctive design, Mahani also innovates with its multi-purpose approach to retail space, hosting emerging fashion designers alongside an artisanal in-house bakery from food designer Arabeschi di Latte and a working catwalk spanning the full length of the boutique that hosts exclusive shows.
