Opening a house of Scandinavian minimalism in the heart of The Netherlands
This week saw the opening of the Swedish fashion concept's new three-floor space in Amsterdam. Housing both a flagship store and an office, Filippa K’s Scandinavian design heritage and brand vision – where simplicity is the purest form of luxury – is present in every detail and choice of material. Developed by Filippa K´s in-house creative team together with Swedish bureau White Arkitekter, the store concept is minimalistic yet warm, with a variation of Bianca Lasa stone and elm wood, heavy tactile linen fabrics, earthy hues and interior design by Vitra and Harry Bertoia. The store also has a greenery with a mix of trees, as well as a five-meter tall fig tree in the store window.
