Koa Nani

Waikiki, Hawaii

One of a series of boutique stores designed for the newly redeveloped Royal Hawaiian Center.  A jewelry brand founded on two ancient Hawaiian words: “Koa” and “Nani” meaning “Brave” and “Beautiful.”  The use of native, sustainably harvested Ōhiʻa and Koa woods make subtle references to the brand’s native -Hawaiian inspired image.  The faceted wood storefront design is a literal transposition of a cut gemstone.
