Yogasmoga Stores


Yogasmoga, Various Locations

A younger generation is shaping a more conscious way of doing business. YOGASMOGA, the yoga and sports apparel company, illustrates this perfectly. They’re committed to performance-based, technologically advanced fabrics and manufacturing techniques. But their rigorous company ethos is equally concerned with the planet—no harmful chemicals, a reduced carbon footprint, and giving back to the people who produce their clothes are all part of their value system. Working with a lightening-fast roll-out, and with 10 different locations and various pop-ups, we united the aesthetic through use of a natural Japanese siding treatment that originated at least as far back as the 18th century. In shou sugi ban, woods such as cypress and hemlock are charred, doused with water, cooled, then brushed to remove dust and debris. Finally, it is finished with tung oil. The environmentally friendly method preserves the wood, eliminating the need for paints and retardants. Like Yogasmoga’s clothes, it looks great too.

Christie's Private Galleries


Christies, New York

Exclusivity is the privilege of the connoisseur. This concept was foremost in the minds of the Axis Mundi team when the venerable Christie’s auction house tapped them to design two private galleries and two skyboxes overlooking the auction floor, amenities offered Christie’s most select coterie of collectors so they can view and bid on art while remaining invisible to public and paparazzi alike. It was essential that the scheme and materials telegraph a kind of access reserved for the elite. The skyboxes were swathed in architectural envelopes of luxurious American black walnut and zebrawood. Furnishings are by that paragon of modern chic, Jean-Michel Frank. The private galleries boast polished terrazzo, a material that elevates the de rigueur concrete we’re used to seeing. Walls—on which blue chip art is in constant rotation—are gallery white, but feature floating reveals and anodized aluminum trim that impart a sense of precision craftsmanship. Elegant and extravagant in an understated way, these skyboxes and galleries exude the sophistication demanded by an art venue of this caliber, with a clientele to match it.
