7 Breathtaking Retail Spaces

There’s never a dull moment in retail design. From pixelated wall shelving based on the human eye to “rolling stone” display cases and faceted surfaces resembling cut gems, here are seven retail design projects attracting shoppers with an appetite for innovation.

Standout: The facade and asymmetrical entry of this luxury department store is distinguished by glass panels overlapping to create a ribbon-like effect. Inside, all furnishings and fixtures are custom, with detailing including white-oak ceilings in the men’s department and walnut stained veneer.

Location: Duisburg, Germany

Standout: A dramatic pixelated wall in shades of blue-and-gray lacquered MDF functions as an eyeglass showcase in the 2,200-square-foot sales, consulting, and reception area of this optometry office. Pristine white custom furniture, walls, and cabinetry ensure the pixelated wall which references the color pigments of a human eye takes center stage. Oak veneer accents the ceiling and walls of the consulting area, where chairs by Charles and Ray Eames pull up to custom oak tables.

Project: Boutique Las Chicas

Location: Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Standout: Inspired by gemstones, the matte fuchsia-lacquered wall panels in this women’s clothing and accessories boutique encourage shoppers to take a non-linear path through the 1,400-square-foot space. Composed of triangular MDF polygons, the faceted wall panels conceal two dressing rooms, while the the form of the cashier’s desk embraces the same abstract language.

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Standout: Oak panels form a sleek suspended ceiling resembling the underside of a wooden boat and flow down to touch the ground at the 22,000-square-foot flagship of supermarket chain Spar, positioned on the ground level of shopping complex MOM Park. Furniture is carved from sleek white solid surfacing, which is both easy to clean and complementary to the flowing lines of the oak detailing. Accent lighting includes lamps made from recycled wine bottles in the wine section and plastic pendant fixtures in the dairy aisle.

Project: Graz Tourismus information center

Location: Graz, Austria

Standout: In the former cannon room of Landeszeughaus. Graz’s historical armory built in 1644, four lacquered MDF “stones” roll through the 3,600-square-foot gift shop. Actually CNC-milled display cases for museum information and merchandise, the rolling stones reference the city’s ancient cobblestones.

Project: Yael Sonia showroom

Location: New York, New York

Standout: Wood accents, a gold-leaf plaster wall, and a custom chandelier combine to make this 2,000-square-foot SoHo loft more residential apartment than jewelry showroom. With a few notable exceptions such as a sofa by Holly Hunt and an oval meeting table by Egg Collective, all furnishings are custom just like the handmade jewelry on display. Sonia specifically requested the dark-stained oak floors. Laid over concrete, they help create a relaxed setting for clients browsing eight oak-and-glass display cases.

Project: Alexander Wang

Standout: Recessed LEDs on the black marble facade call attention to this 5,000-square-foot, three-level flagship necessary since the store sits at the far end of a street in Aoyama, Tokyo’s entertainment and shopping district. Inside, marble walls and pedestals, area rugs in wool and silk, and mostly custom furnishings create a white backdrop and black accent frame for collections.

September 6th, 2016

We had the opportunity to create the best sportswear store in Denmark, and we did. At a large retail space, in one of the biggest shopping centers in Denmark, we designed, developed, and built this very special sport and fashion store. Great efforts in layout and creativity concerning function, materials, and visuals have made this shop simply unique.

September 1st, 2016

In addition to the temporary retail space, the latter has taken over the store windows and the atrium space of the women s department to make an unprecedented brand statement on the premises.

The FEELING MYSELF space features black walls along with illuminated mirrors and fixtures, while intricate wire weaving adorns the ceiling, giving the space an industrial and slightly futuristic feel.

From this perspective, the constraints of the existing retail design became opportunities: where a shopping centre would say hallway, AIM could say island, a natural place to meet while using the home-style kitchens or sitting at the communal table.

The structure is framed by two 3-dimensional walls, distinguished by the use of crinkle-cut concrete surfaces and the linear or asymmetrical cutouts that function as illuminated niches for the display of products.

A grainy texture softens the sharply cut angles and cast a dark shadow; resembling a picture in itself rather than a retail space. The dark tones eliminate distractions and focus an angle on displayed imagery.

Natural materials and a warm, light palette reflect the retailer’s sensibility. Contrasting terrazzo floors were used in the shop and salon-spa to differentiate these two areas.

Have Questions?
We can help.

The retail marketplace is highly competitive and diverse; as a result, it presents unique challenges for manufacturers.

Plastic Ingenuity helps its customers present their products in the most favorable light not only to consumers, but also to retailers who stock and sell their products. By taking into account the retail stocking and restocking processes that can affect product placement and resulting sales, PI helps customers ensure that they get the most advantageous treatment by retailers throughout the process. Additionally, PI’s durable and easy to open retail packaging products are designed in such a way as to limit damage to the package and the encased product during storage, transit, and delivery. Furthermore, PI’s custom designs also help reduce pilferage of the customers’ products and provide added value to consumers by reducing the effort needed to open the products after purchase.

Retail Stocking

At Plastic Ingenuity, we’ve done the research on how retailers determine product placement.

Our retail packaging solutions are designed to fit peg hooks or sit on shelves easily and with clear visibility of both the product and the graphics card. Our highly visible retail packaging products offer a combination of outstanding protection and eye appeal for consumers. This can enhance branding efforts and increase sales due to the improved visibility our custom retail packaging can provide.

Innovative Design and Speed to Market

The skilled and experienced professionals at Plastic Ingenuity are proficient in creating designs that get products noticed.

Our customers enjoy fast turn-around times, superior packaging integrity, and significant flexibility as to the size and timing of every project. Because virtually all facets of the project are controlled in-house by Plastic Ingenuity staff, we can offer turn-around times on designs of about three to four days, and first prototypes are often available within the week they were ordered. This exceptional speed of service allows us to serve our customers better and respond more quickly to changes in the marketplace or in the product lines offered by our customers. We are confident nobody in the plastic thermoforming industry has faster turn-around times than Plastic Ingenuity.

At Plastic Ingenuity, we are committed to innovative design and constantly strive to improve our production techniques and processes. From wet wipes containers to sporting goods packaging, we aim to provide the best possible retail packaging products for our customers with exceptional service.

“We came to PI with a unique design challenge, and we had an incredibly tight deadline. Not only did they beat our deadline, they gave us a product that solved problems we never knew existed.”

Joe Jacobus, Manager of Packaging Development

I would like to thank Plastic Ingenuity for everything they have done for our company. Everything was exceptional and went smoothly. The employees at PI were very conscious of our needs and very helpful. They not only provided a package that protected our product, but presented it in a superior fashion. I was very impressed with everything they followed through with. Thank you Plastic Ingenuity.
