London, or more exactly, Newport Street, SE11 6AJ, is where the Other Criteria Store can be found. The brand works with Limited Editions and sells them online, as well as in the stores in New York and England. Books and "fascinating objects" from around the whole world are part of the portfolio. There are famous co-operations with designers and artists, such as Damien Hirst, from England.
Installed in the showroom there are altogether 85m² of mafi Domino Larch Vulcano, brushed and white oiled. The design concept backs a clear break between furnishings, wall and ceiling colours, and the floor. As the furniture is brilliantly white, occasionally even shiny, the floor provides an attractive contrast with its colour capacity. Moreover, this reduced approach increases the focus on the products which are colourful in stark contrast to the furnishings. The Other Criteria Store in London is a prime example of intelligent, however primarily sales driven, functional store design.
