Welcome to our round up of recent projects that have inspired us/caught our eye from the world of retail, exhibition and lighting. 

 

Nike+ Run Club Omotesando, Japan

Striking neon lighting to the exterior of the building is the first thing to catch your eye on this project. Working in conjunction with the subtle black framework, the large Nike logo and sheer amount of light projected makes this unmissable once the sun goes down.

The high impact lighting continues in-store, throughout dedicated trainer/running equipment sections. Lighting emulating running tracks span the ceiling, with targeted graphic displays kept to a minimum, providing information around products.

Samsung, France

Requiring a more contemporary, relaxed atmosphere for the display of new ‘Gear’ products, Umdasch & Retail Design Agency Cheil, didn’t disappoint.

With a clear use of zoning, each area of the store has a purpose, and allows customers to take a journey from the latest smartwatches, to how these interact with mobile phones.

The highlight for us is the ‘Gear S2’ smartwatch displays. With a seemingly levitating glass surface for product demonstration, combined with an animated screen in the centre of each plinth, these are intelligent display solutions sure to engage customers.

boutique.Goldsmiths, Green Room Retail

Possibly our favourite retail application we’ve seen this week, GRR developed a concept for jewellery retailer, Goldsmiths. 

The high gloss finish throughout the store oozes class, with the white displays providing the perfect contrast for high visibility black illuminated signage above each brand area.

Finally, using a range of textures adds to the overall aesthetic of the store, with dark grain wood being subtly applied beneath cabinet displays, again providing the perfect contrast to the integrated signage options.
