Tiffany Unveils Plans for its New Las Vegas StoreOctober 6th, 2009 | Category: Industry News
Tiffany & Co. announced design details of its soon-to-be-opened store at CityCenter on the Las Vegas Strip. The new two-level TIFFANY & CO. store will face Las Vegas Boulevard and will be located in Crystals, CityCenter’s 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind and Rockwell Group, which features a crystalline canopy.Slated for a December opening, the approximately 10,000-square-foot store features an 85-foot-high glass façade that is canted slightly over the street and shaped like a diamond. The façade incorporates the store’s entrance of polished black granite framing deco-inspired stainless steel doors, and serves as a great window that reveals the store’s interior with its spiral steel and glass staircase and curved, multi-layered ceiling.
“CityCenter is a model of innovation, and we are very happy to be part of it,” said Beth O. Canavan, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “We have designed a store that honors the vision of world-renowned architects and urban planners, and at the same time reflects our heritage of quality and craftsmanship.”
The interior of the two-level store is a celebration of movement and light. Reflections of the gleaming gold and sterling silver jewelry multiply in a mirrored wall etched with a vertical pattern of pinstripes, and another wall covered with an iridescent purple fabric that extends the full 85 feet to the store’s ceiling. Each step on the crystalline stone and glass staircase is lit from beneath, emphasizing the curve of the stairs that shine through the glass façade.
The store’s second level features a gallery of crystal-covered walls, with column vitrines of bronze-frosted mirrors and designated areas for eyewear, leather accessories and charms. The private sales salon is accessed via a glass bridge that is 10 feet long and hovers 25 feet over the floor below.
