SAINT CHARLES STORE WIEN
In 2019, we opened our first Saint Charles Brand Store in the centre of Vienna. The focus is not on size, but on the experience: on 32 square metres, you can immerse yourself in a place of well-being and enjoyment that appeals to all senses and makes products from nature experienceable.
Around 300 Saint Charles products from the areas of natural cosmetics, aromatherapy and nutritional supplements are waiting for you. As with the design, the focus lies on reducing the products to the essentials. Instead of plastic and packaging waste, the focus is on noble and sustainable brown or violet glass. You can taste the products at tasting stations. More than 17 solid wooden cubes offer a journey for all the senses and a soothing time-out from hectic everyday life. A central washbasin invites you to intensively test the cosmetic products.
A Venetian stone floor, locksmith art by Wolfgang Ure, wooden cubes made of solid local oak with a chainsaw look by carpenter Stefan Knopp, handmade tiles from the Karak manufactory and custom work by carpenter Florian Vrana underline our passion for design and regional craftsmanship. An authentic audio experience with sounds from local nature is provided by Sound Artist Richard Eigner. The exhibition concept of the interior design was developed, planned and implemented by the young BÜRO KLK.
"Award Winning Design": In 2020, our store in Vienna was awarded the BigSEE Interior Design Award 2020.2021 was followed by German Design Award Special 2022, Special Mention Excellent Architecture & Retail Architecture.
"Saint Charles is unique for me. Each of the around 300 products is closely linked to nature and thus supports body and mind both internally and externally. Taking the time for a detailed customer consultation is a matter of course for me: friendliness, advice and well-being are what makes Saint Charles special."
"Outstanding design means providing answers to the challenges of our time and thinking design further ahead", German Design Award. The high-calibre international jury awarded us in the categories Excellent Architecture & Retail Architecture.
