The candy store Sweet Alchemy by Stelios Parliaros in Athens was designed by designer Stelios Kois, of Kois Associated Architects . Its mysterious atmosphere contrasts with the delicate sweets, displayed in wooden and glass cases. Jars, bottles, boxes and trays receive a dramatic lighting effects from the ceiling. The abundant sunlight is refracted through a steel grid with glass shelves.

The space is characterized by a high degree of transparency, combined with diffuse illumination. The lights and shadows change throughout the day, providing a unique atmosphere at all times. The choice of rustic materials such as iron, bronze, copper, wood and concrete were selected for their natural characteristics and they were not altered in order emulate an appearance.
