Unique Store Fixtures has been recognized with a Gold A’ Design Award in the 2019–2020 Interior Space and Exhibition Design category for the fabrication of custom millwork at the KitKat Chocolatory in Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Center. The A’ Design Award & Competition is among the most prestigious design accolades worldwide, judged by an international panel comprising press members, designers, academics, and entrepreneurs.
“It is an absolute honor to be recognized for our work and awarded this prestigious global design award,” says Ferro Corrente, COO, Unique Store Fixtures. “We share this award with our entire team, including our incredible team of craftspeople, who worked tirelessly in creating this space within tight timelines.”
Opening to great fanfare in November 2019, the KitKat Chocolatory, is the first permanent North American location and the Canadian flagship store of the globally successful retail concept. A celebration of the world-famous chocolate brand, the KitKat Chocolatory engages customers with the opportunity to create personalized and custom-made products in a fun, whimsical chocolate emporium.
Unique Store Fixtures, creator of custom-crafted retail environments, collaborated with a Toronto interior design firm to fabricate all custom millwork for the project and ensure that the overall interior concept presented was fully realized from conception to implementation.
Utilizing the fabrication expertise of Unique Store Fixtures and that of its in-house capabilities, all aspects of the project, including custom stonework, metal fabrication, glass, and wood, allowed Unique Store Fixtures to bring the entire front-of-house design to life. Standout features include the architectural millwork of the bulkhead and wood components adorning the entry to the store.
