The UK’s leading health and beauty retailer Boots has opened it’s doors to a brand new flagship in London’s Covent Garden. Arguably a much-needed update in order to reinvent its retail experience for the future. With a variety of experiences available such as a large wellness area, an Instagram selfie area, a water bottle refilling station and a waiting area with views over Covent Garden Market.
With a much more contemporary lighting scheme which includes suspended linear luminaires, large spheres suspended at varying lengths above the escalators create a really exciting feel and plenty of visual interest.
Additionally, the lighting for each area of the two-storey store has clearly been designed for that specific area, as opposed to a blanket approach with the lighting. The open ceiling also creates a sense of space and enables the lighting to become a feature within itself.
“We have gone for a more premium feel even though we continue to be the same excellent value as we are across our stores”
Seb James, Boots
It is a truly exciting experience, full of big beauty brands and ideas for living sustainably. This store will act as a blueprint for their 2,500 estate, where they will take elements and roll it out across the country- we can’t wait to see!
