Found Associates has created a one-off Kurt Geiger men’s shoe concession in Selfridges department store in London’s Oxford Street. The concession is scheduled to open in mid-August.

Large mirrors line a second wall and the consultancy has designed a giant, minimalist sofa to ‘jar with the disciplined straight lines’ of the concession, says Found.
