Stone Island has selected the city of Toronto and its renowned Yorkville Avenue to open its first store in Canada, expanding its presence in the North American market. This opening marks the brand’s third store in North America after opening in New York and Los Angeles.
The store features large corner windows and covers an area of over 190 sqm across two levels, creating ample exhibition space for the Stone Island and Shadow Project collections.
The interior design follows the concept used for Stone Island stores created by Marc Buhre, industrial designer from Heidelberg (Germany) and founder of Zeichenweg TM architectural firm. Each element of the system has been created to work together in a highly functional design.
The bush-hammered stone flooring is also used on the walls, interspersed with parts in through-colour MDF and metallic mesh on a steel substructure. Furnishings are in black-stained natural oak, hangers are composed of carbon bars and anodized aluminium and shelves are in shades of anthracite.
