Ayindisa, Ridgefield, CT

Description: The goal was to design a socially responsible, artisan handcrafts flagship retail store in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Due to our unique experience in creating and providing indigenous design in Africa for several non-profit companies, we worked together with great success. The main design concept was derived from the company’s name, Ayindisa, which in Ghanaian means “God is watching over you.” We implemented a ceiling pattern of natural wood materials and specialized lighting to replicate sunrays shining overhead. These sunrays will comfort the patron while they are browsing throughout the store and give relevance to something beyond the merchandise.
