In general, Midcentury Californian design is the inspiration behind the Oliver Peoples stores in LA and California. Each shop has a unique image which combines recurring elements and references to the culture of the city or area in which it is located.
“I grew up in Italy,” explains Giampiero Tagliaferri, Creative Director, Oliver Peoples. “I was surrounded by buildings and objects by the great Italian designers of that time such as Giò Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, Franco Albini or Luigi Caccia Dominioni, among others.”
Elements of these great designers’ works have inspired details of the store interior, including the stairs and flooring – created with Carlo Scarpa’s structures and aesthetics in mind. All the furniture in the store has been created ad hoc and produced by Italian artisans.
