Waffles Sneaker Delicacies Shoe Store in Brussels, Belgium [BEAVERHAUSEN]

Waffles Sneaker Delicacies in Brussels Belgium

Belgian interior design studio BEAVERHAUSEN created the interior for Waffles Sneaker Delicacies shoe store located in Brussels, Belgium. “A very clean white space was designed for the Waffles sneaker store in Brussels. We took the name litteraly in order to create a world that breaths waffles. The wall behind the counter and the counter itself are covered with white tiles to give the space a bakery feeling. The shelves are simplified waffle shapes made out of coated foam. The cut-aways in the waffle shapes proudly present colourful shoes. This creates a delicious contrast while a mirror behind every cut-away shows us the other side of each shoe. And to top it all, a special waffle perfume will make your feet hungry.”

The design is clean and refined, and all the products are presented in an inviting setting, leaving us to wonder what American shop compares?
