Commercial & Retail, Furniture & Fixtures
Green Sand Inc. was chosen by the owners of Koa Nani Design to create a unique retail experience that embodies the spirit of this new inspired line of Contemporary Hawaiian Jewelry. Brave and Beautiful, this new line for men, women and couples reinterprets the style and meaning of Hawaiian jewelry.
After several discussions with the owners, Green Sand Inc. began to design a space that represents the singular qualities of Koa Nani. The faceted Koa wood walls became that distinctive element that symbolized the deeper meaning of Koa Nani, blending the essence of Hawaii with contemporary design to create a “Modern Hawaiian” aesthetic. The faceted Koa walls and Ohia plank floors, walls and ceiling redefine the way local Hawaiian woods are used, expressing the beauty and warmth of Koa and Ohia in a bold innovative fashion. The façade is a series of alternating solid and transparent elements. The transparent elements allow views into the space and draw you into the space. The solid elements provide a backdrop for the stainless steel framed display cases. The interior expresses the same qualities as the façade with a carpeted sales area and a variety of display opportunities including built in wall displays, tall freestanding display fixtures and lower display fixtures designed for seated viewing.
