Hariri Pontarini Architects took on the challenge of creating this first-in-Canada retail approach by reconceiving what Adidas could be. Inspired by the iconic three-stripe logo and the possibilities for circulation within the space, a rich palette of materials was used to create distinguishing pieces. The 3-stripe LED light functions as an icon of the brand and a wayfinder, attracting guests off the busy Yonge and Dundas square and allowing them to easily navigate through the space while driving energy from the square into the store. The cash desk, lofted mezzanine, elegant glass partition, and curved stair with walnut tread add sophistication to the shopping experience. Located within Yonge and Dundas square, a lively hub and marketplace in the core of downtown Toronto, the Adidas Flagship store responds its surroundings by offering an elevated shopping experience and a refined retail environment.

Curving around the exterior canopy through the entrance and along the spine of the shop, the feature lighting fixture defines the primary pathway with turns at critical moments along the way. The custom fixture was crafted from LED lights inside milky plexi-glass to ensure soft white consistent lighting.
