Estúdio Tupi Architects for Ara Vartanian

A few weeks ago I managed to get a sneak peek at Brazilian jeweller Ara Vartanian’s new Mayfair boutique in Bruton Place just before it opened.
The showroom turned out to be an interior photographer’s dream, with its contrasting rough corrugated concrete walls, precious mid-century wood and leather furniture, emerging from darkness though spots of dimmed lights, and a wood table the Ara designed with Hugo França, with a rock crystal leg protruding through the top.

The space was designed by London/Rio based practice Estúdio Tupi, who also designed Ara Vartanian’s other brutalist-inspired showrooms in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
