Orior Opens its SoHo Flagship with Nods to its Irish Roots
Showcasing some of its classics but also a fresh offering of new wares that incorporate cast bronze and upcycled crystal, the new storefront also plays host to Katie Ann McGuigan’s shop-in-shop fashion display. While bespoke luminaires from Vancouver-based studio Bocci adorn various vignettes. Custom shelving units and fit-outs make good use of the SoHo locale, while large movable mirrors let visitors take a different look at meticulously staged window displays. Overall, the building’s post-industrial architecture lends itself to Orior’s aesthetic and philosophy—combining old with new and fostering a culture of co-creation.
