Located in New York, in Soho´s neighborhood, Galeria Melissa was designed to harmonize with the concept of a shelter. Floor, wall and ceiling were built with the same finish to stress this impression, and the shoes are arranged in small increases in both wall and floor that evoke stalagmites. We created a natural empty floor space in the back of the gallery. Its creation was inspired from the manufacturing of Melissa products, because it evokes the channel through which the plastic is injected into the shoe molds. It is architecture with strong traces, but serving as support for the intervention of guest artists.
