The Cassette is the second in a series of retail spaces designed and fabricated by GRAS for the Waverley Mall shopping centre in central Edinburgh. Here, we created an open, bright and stylish new kiosk design that transforms what was once a dark and unused space.
GRAS conceived a carefully curated material palette for the kiosk, including delicate pink timber cladding and a chunky terrazzo worktop made out of reclaimed marble. These features are combined with bespoke elements including a brass frame with discrete integrated lighting and a custom-made neon sign. The Cassette has created a space which is playful in form and redefines its corner of the mall.

- Reclaimed marble terrazzo
This brightly hued corner of the mall modestly gestures towards the busy passage of Waverley Steps, emphasising the need for spaces that offer a unique and distinctive visual and tactile experience.
