Delvaux Xi'an SKP Store

The Delvaux Xi'an SKP store, which officially opened in November 2021, is found on the first floor of the Xi'an SKP (store number A1005-1), located on 261 Changan North Road in the Beilin district of Xi'an. Delvaux was created in Brussels by the innovative Charles Delvaux in 1829 with a very long history. For hundreds of years, Delvaux has always adhered to the classic craftsmanship of leather goods design and it was granted the title of "Purveyor to the Court" by King Leopold II in 1883.

The Delvaux Xi'an SKP store designed by VUDAFIERI-SAVERINO PARTNERS (VSP) is a continuation of the Delvaux brand story, boutique positioning and is committed to creating a comfortable shopping experience. Under the influence of Belgian surrealism, each piece of Delvaux's work is unique and interesting, and each handbag is full of exquisite craftsmanship. According to this eclectic spirit, the lighting design uses lighting fixtures with high color rendering as to better present the exquisite details of leather goods.

The interior of the store is mainly composed of two areas. Due to their different functions, their illuminances are also different. The illuminance of the lobby at the entrance is high and eye-catching while the VIP area is slightly lower in terms of illuminance and relaxing.

In the lobby, below the soft ceiling with a rectangular cove light illuminated by linear LEDs, are the bags displayed on the central glass table with mirror-like finishes that echo with those that wrap the horizontal display glass panels with integrated mini LED linear lights. In order to better present the exquisite details of the goods, the lighting design also refers to the "shadowless light"  principle to provide illumination from multiple angles.

The design of the VIP area brings an atmosphere different from most commercial stores. This area allows more in-depth customer experience and interaction with the texture of the goods in a comfortable and relaxing and refined environment where the lighting is both focused and dimmed accordingly.

Even though each Delvaux store each unique, the consistent pursuit of providing timeless classic craftsmanship luxurious leather goods reveal through "texture" is what the the interior design and the lighting design support Delvaux for.

LDPi is grateful to VSP for its continuous support in every step of the project, especially during the pandemic.
