A highlight of the 108,000-square-foot Seibu Flagship Department Store in Jakarta, Indonesia, is a five-story etched glass, chrome and mirror atrium. Callison's design uses cantilevered stages that showcase custom displays. The use of patterns is meant to create a theatrical environment characterized by opulent depth and dimension.
The patterns — using local cherry blossoms as a design reference — are carried through the rest of the store in different forms in wall and floor patterns, further etchings and other elements. Hand-cut marble and textured woodwork also add to the mix and convey the upscale aesthetic Seibu has become known for throughout the Far East.
