Oil & Vinegar
Designer Terry Moore designed the rustic Mediterranean interior of a number of European Oil & Vinegar shops. His design is not only pleasing to the eye, it caters to all senses.
Designer Terry Moore of Terry Moore Design set out to create an environment sympathetic to Oil & Vinegar’s product. “I used materials like natural wood flooring and stonework on the walls. ‘Honest’ is a word I use a lot to define our design philosophy. I prefer suppliers that still actually craft things, rather then just turn out volume.”
To offsetthe natural materials Moore likes to use clean lines and technically smart solutions in his design: “I designed wall fixtures for example with a no-frills design that are sophisticated tools at the same time: they provide an opportunity for people to taste the product in key areas in the store.”
Texture, smell, taste
“In a shop like this, that revolves around food, texture, smell and taste are just as important as the overall look”, says Moore. “Apart from the tasting areas the oils and vinegars on tap add scent to the store as well. I really designed the store with all sensory dimensions in mind.”
