ABBOTT | Evolving a relationship

As with many long-standing clients, FIORINO DESIGN's work for Abbott of England, wholesalers of giftware, accessories and housewares, developed in stages - first the corporate offices, then the design of a trade show booth, and finally an updating of Abbott's showroom.

To rejuvenate the existing showroom, a central rotunda was introduced as a dramatic focal point to house the extensive glassware collection. Simultaneously concealing both air supply and return air vents, a dropped circular drywall ceiling anchors the open-concept space. To update the remainder of the space, new free-standing perimeter and floor units, paint colour palette and accent lighting were specified.
