The Sleeping Dogs concept store at Hamburg’s Rödingsmarkt offers a superb curated selection of furniture and home accessories. In a space of almost 500 square metres, the objects by world-class designers and young talents are presented much like exhibits in an art gallery – perfectly staged with state-of-the-art ERCO LED photometric technology.
Sleeping Dogs stands out in many respects from conventional home furnishing stores: In a prime location between Rödingsmarkt and Fleet, not far from Hamburg’s Hafencity and Speicherstadt districts, the store welcomes customers with a bright and spacious feel over almost 500 square metres, featuring glass façades on two sides as well as a formidably high ceiling ranging up to 5.80 metres. Glass, steel and concrete, complemented by visible cable ducts and vent pipes under the ceiling, lend the room a timeless industrial character. In this neutrally designed ambience with its technical features, the unconventional and often brightly coloured furniture, luminaires and interior objects for sale by designer and owner Carmen Gloger are showcased perfectly alongside accessories, jewellery and art. Quality, not quantity: In gallery style, the selected objects are presented in changing exhibitions and combined with matching large-sized pictures and canvasses.
