Bellísima, Villahermosa - Mexico
Architect Mauricio Ramírez, president of Arquitectos Interiores in Mexico, has a beef with lighting that stands out: “I don’t like to put a lot of light fixtures on the wall – the light fixture contamination can be too much,” he says.
When leaders of the cosmetics retailer Bellísima (Mérida, Mexico) contracted with Mérida-based Arquitectos Interiores S.C.P to design a 732-square-foot Yucatan Peninsula flagship, they were looking for a modern concept that would attract shoppers at a spacious new mall in Villahermosa, Mexico. The store draws middle-class guests from ages 20-40.
Ramírez created a sleek space with a simple red, gray and white color palette that would be simple enough to allow multi-colored merchandise to shine. A hint of fun was added by using a youthful splash of red, drawn from the company’s kiss-shaped logo, on ceilings and floors.
