DeLite Engineering has done the complete interior fitouts and design


  • Kuwait childrens designer fashion store Savanna has opened its first branch, in The Avenues Mall, with an interior inspired by the African landscape which gives the retailer its name.

  • Three dimensional animal characters can be seen from outside the store, and appear throughout the interior. Each animal represents an African species, with many of the characters playing a role in wayfinding for customers, a blue monkey highlights the changing rooms, while a rhino and two elephants guard a play tent.

  • Colour co-ordinated snakes purple for girls, green for boys, are used on shoe displays. The snakes have shoelace tongues to accentuate the playfulness of the store. Meanwhile luxury colours and finishes, including brushed gold fixtures and white units, emphasise the designer collections on show.

  • The cash desk features an elephant with a jet of water, represented by blue blocks, emerging from its trunk.

  • The geometric shapes, inspired by the adaptable eco-systems of Africa, are used throughout the store on flexible bespoke display and merchandising units, as well in the animal characters and on wall graphics. The shapes are intended to provide a welcoming and interactive space for adults and children.
