Following the opening of its very first retail space in Toronto, an event we covered in a previous post, cannabis purveyor Edition is riding the wave of popularity of its fully legalised merchandise, opening a second design-led outpost in the city. Situated just a few blocks north from in the leafy Humewood-Cedarvale neighbourhood, the store sees a renewed collaboration with local architecture practice StudioAC. The objective to create an understated and uncluttered space with a singular volume has once again been applied, albeit adapted to the dimensions of the new outpost and slightly tweaked to lend it a distinct identity all its own. More specifically, a 90-degree triangulation has been utilised, allowing the industrial fibre glass grating material to become its own structure and produce both bracing and support simultaneously. Adhering to cannabis retail regulations, vertical grid screens in zig-zag position have been used to shield the merchandise from street views, and inside the Edition store, this construction effortlessly morphs into a display and a sales counter. An elongated display takes centre stage, featuring three additional glass trays, additional while a narrow ledge running along the other side wall offers more space to present merchandise. The walls are dipped in a subtle lime hue to provide texture and light play across the premises. The new Edition store carries the full range of cannabis products, related tools and lifestyle merchandise.
