The motif of the design is based on the chemical structure of the products, the hexagonal raster, which is presented on each product. Hexagonal polygons, which hold the products, were created in the design process and they complete the whole idea of the design. The materials were carefully selected: warm light maple and brass details, which add a dose of luxury.

The range of products on hexagonal gondolas include selected wines, different types of cheese, olive oil, dried fruit, chocolate and organic cosmetics.

The most specific feature of the new design is the tasting bar in the central part of the shop, an interactive space which provides passengers with the opportunity to try the most famous delicacies Croatia has to offer – from the best selections of wines, awarded olive oils to different treats.
