Ista is a luxury business hotel. Their boutique displays a large variety of items from books to clothes to cosmetics. The look is clean and simple with a medium-tone marble floor and primary elements of white, steel and wood.
Located in Amritsar, Punjab, India. The floor area is 37 sqm (398 sqft). The project was completed in Jun 2009. Lighting design by Be Lit, Bangkok.
Seamless glass barely separates the boutique from the rest of the public spaces. Intersecting wooden rectangles bring the products to eye level.
