Nespresso, Arndale Centre Manchester


Sector Luxury Retail

Size 160m2 Timescale 11 weeks

Nespresso’s concept boutique is an immersive space that reflects the deep commitment that Nespresso has to a circular economy. Every feature of the retail environment has been purposefully designed to reference the provenance of the coffee in a bid to connect the customer to its cultural roots. This includes the tabletops made from used coffee grounds from the factory in Switzerland, to wood sourced from reforestation programs on coffee farms.

The brushed aluminium lamps suspended above the tasting areas are a subtle reference to the bean-to-cup journey by emulating the heat lamps used in the coffee-making process.

The store incorporates two complementary geometric shapes that pay tribute to the ethos of the luxury coffee brand. The square, which can be seen in the display units and POS, is synonymous with the brand’s values of perfection, pleasure, aestheticism, and simplicity. The circle, which is referenced in the store’s bar stools and the curved tasting unit, evokes the coffee cup, discovery, tasting, and the senses.

Key Point

Bespoke joinery, soft leather, brushed metal and polished glass, have been used to ensure a luxurious and harmonious customer journey.
