Powershop presents the best retail designs by 10 Japanese interior architects, each of whom agreed to a personal interview.
Nowhere in the world does the interior design of a shop influence sales as it does in Japan. Retailers spare no trouble or expense when planning and realising the design or renovation of their premises. A particularly trendsetting sector is the world of fashion. If a few months pass and the interior fails to produce the desired commercial success, the refurbishment game starts all over again.
In Japan, retail design is a highly developed branch of interior architecture. PowerShop presents the best and most recent retail designs by 10 Japanese interior architects, each of whom agreed to a personal interview. Shops and showrooms created for established names like Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Nissan share centre stage with numerous smaller, cutting-edge boutiques. In-depth reviews of more than 46 projects are complemented by full-shot and close-up photographs. And that's just a tip of the iceberg.
PowerShop is designed by Frame's art director Roelof Mulder; has a hardcover with a red foil print, and consists of 228 pages of visual experiences. PowerShop exists of portraits and portfolios of the following Japanese design firms: - AZB - Curiosity - EXIT Metal Work Supply - Fumita Design Office - Yasuo Kondo Design Office - Out.Design - SEI - WonderWall - Hideo Yasui Atelier - Tokujin Yoshioka Design
