Matreshka — Shopping center

The main concept of the interior design of the "Matreshka" Shopping and Entertainment Center (located in Russia, Tyumen, Shirotnaya street) is to evoke this Russian doll and national symbol.
This interior design concept offers a redefinition of the most striking elements of traditional Russian culture.

Idea — Russian culture

modern design

This idea is conveyed through the use of bright colors in the decorative materials. Moreover, a large number of varied, modern geometric prints that echo the idea of traditional Russian ornamentation are abundantly presented in the paintings of Russian dolls.
All the techniques in the finishing materials, the furniture, the food court, the main atriums and the bathrooms convey the theme effectively and create the desired mood.

Environment — atmosphere of comfort

The "Matreshka" shopping center is a place for everyday pastimes. It offers a comfortable shopping experience and access to everyday services for a range of visitors.
This is a shopping center for locals who like to come here again and again, because they feel comfortable in the space that has been created.
But in addition to simplicity and comfort, visitors like to spend time here with their children. They may even experience nostalgia for the time when they used to be children themselves!
This local, simple center fulfils two roles: one one hand it is a nod to traditional Russian folk culture and to times gone by. On the other, the space is very modern and technologically advanced and in this way it looks forward to the future.
