Do Design Madrid. Some time ago I entered a shop on Calle Fernando VI where they give you a business card made of recycled carton with a tree on it and the name Do.
Compared to all the other cards I have from the numerous places I visited in Madrid, this one sticked out from the crowd. Without any colors or patterns to get your attention it send a clear message about what the shop it represents. Entering Do Design on C/Fernando VI 13, I first thought I was in an art gallery. Various portraits were greeting me on the left and a small coffee place on the right.
You have to take some steps forward to see that Do Design is a space for designer clothes, accessories, furniture, home design objects,porcelain and art. Names like Henrik Vibskov are around many other designers who are hardly found anywhere else in Madrid. A perfect place to give your look a unique touch and distinguish yourself from the crowd.
The beautiful aspect of Do Design is their shop decoration. It is very clear without anything fancy that would distract your view from the things their offers. A bit like on a design fair if you look at the little house where the staff is waiting to help you. In the back they have two striped tents and it feels like visiting the north of Europe and being at a beach.
If you want to experience a new concept of a shop, where you can get inspired by beautiful things, get to know Spanish and Euopean brands you haven’t heard of yet and get to know a minimalistic way of design, Do Design is the place for you.
It is situated in the heart of Chueca and offers you the most friendly customer service.
