Delta (like design, decoration …) Mo ( like  modern , mobile…) and main title “ home philosophy”, was created with enthusiasm, the owners vision and their contemporary approach to  modern living. The result is an exemplary 4 level furniture show room that follows the global trends and the mix match aesthetics.

The ground floor space reflects the shops identity and character by promoting some completed home concepts. The mezzanine level was created by Swedish birch bonded wood and because of the low ceiling it was chosen to host the children and teenagers furniture.

 

 

The design brief required a fresh, simple, warm and a bit “Catalan” space. All the levels had to be flexible for future rearrangements and the lights were deliberately placed to serve this purpose but also to create a theatrical effect at night.

The last floor is dedicated to bedrooms, outdoor furniture in a raised urban roof garden and finally the firm’s offices. Last but not least the basement level hosts the “value for money” furniture.
