Nordstrom opens in New York, and Burberry takes prime position

US department store Nordstrom has opened a 320,000sqft store in the world’s tallest residential building, Central Park Tower in New York.

The five-storey store was designed by the firm in collaboration with James Carpenter Design Associates with two underground levels and a curving glass facade. The interior featured LED lighting, glass walls and a chainmail curtain, which is used as a divider between the luxury brands featured in store.

Luxury house Burberry has become the first brand to take over the store’s concept space with an immersive installation that spans five rooms, which will run through December.

The installation is an industrial space with cardboard building blocks contrasted against silver and gold mirror cubes. Visitors are welcome to decorate the concept store’s blank windows. 

The temporary space also features a cafe inspired by Burberry’s all-day London cafe Thomas’s.
