This vintage boutique is a project conceived by Yaroslav Galant Innovative Design. The vintage-style boutique of motorcycle clothing and accessories is situated in the old mill building at the Bike Rock-n-Roll Club ROUTE66 territory (Kiev).
Description by Yaroslav Galant: Cylindrical shape of the abandoned mill with high ceiling and spiral stairs has determined the choice of design solution. That is a smart industrial style. It is perfectly agreed with boutique subjects and remarkable loft space. The designer only had to remove all unnecessary things to use the advantages of the existing architecture and roughness of native materials.
White painting revealed the brickwork texture, uncovered concrete fragments and dynamic form of winding stairs leading nowhere. The cosmic black ceiling emphasizes the surrealistic space composition.
All of the furnishing and lightning elements are invented by designer. Rugh, almost crude wood boards and colored water-pipes were used to manufacture the clothes rack.
The natural stone is used as a motorcycle helmet pedestal. It is mounted on the textured wooden support. Its elements are fastened by metal strings.
The ceiling lights and two wall lamps are assembled from metal elements, shaped according to designer’s drafts. Edison lamps provide warm and soft light. The stand lamp holds three uncovered lamps. Glove holder is built into the wall. They both are made from water-pipes. Their bends are used as shelves for catalogs and magazines. Water-pipes are also used to cover electric wiring.
Industrial lorry was used as a prototype for the visitors’ sofa. It is covered by the sacking and tarpaulin materials. They are decorated with colored stamps used for cargo transportation at the old time.
The cargo transport theme is also developed by the coffee table on rough metal wheels. The table was made from the wooden boards. They look like being pulled out of different old boxes. Visit Yaroslav Galant Innovative Design
