It’s no news that when it comes to fashion boutiques, display windows frequently, if not always, play a pivotal role in the concept and also, the success of a store. With this in mind, Swiss architect Reto Pedrocchi, along with his Basel-based practice Pedrocchi Architekten, has realised this new angular extension of the Föger Woman Pure boutique located in the Austrian town of Telfs in Tyrol.

With the new interior architecture of the Friedrichstadt Apotheke, a pharmacy close to the famous Friedrichstraße, the Berlin based wiewiorra hopp architekten created a dynamic shop and transparent production facility which is reminiscent of the modern spirit of Berlin’s 1920s and which accentuates the traditional trade of the pharmacist guild.

A landscape of wine crates, this is the new interior concept for the Zurich wine store Albert Reichmuth, designed by the Swiss studio OOS. Around 1500 crates from majoritarian French wine-growing regions are arranged on walls, floor and ceiling and form the display system as well as some room for storage.

Nendo designed the new shop including this beautiful and minimal display system for clothes and accessories for the Japanese fashion label ISSEY MIYAKE at Shibuya Parco in Tokyo.

Here is what the designers say:

“The Miyake team wanted a new design concept for the 24 Issey Miyake shop in Shibuya’s Parco shopping complex, which includes a store that specially features Miyake’s new Bilbao bag.
The Bilbao bag has no set form. Instead, it settles depending on how it is placed. To match the bag, we abandoned the standard hard, flat and smooth fixtures found in most shops, and created a set of variable-height fixtures made of thin steel rods that stand like a field of prairie grass in the shop, with a similar vague, undefined shape like the bag.
Shelving and hanger rods are also made of steel rods, in the 7 mm diametre common to all of the 24 Issey Miyake shop interiors. Supported by ‘points’, rather than by surfaces or lines, the bags seem to waft in the air like flowers in a light breeze, creating the illusion of a field of flowers in the store.”

KINZO interior design: counter and bench

The Berlin based design studio KINZO realised this interior architecture for the newly opened boutique of MAYGREEN, a German eco-fashion label.

KINZO interior design: counter, metal sheet and light installation

“The core of the interior design is the eye-catching light installation akin to a computer chip, the giant grass hopper solely composed of green light, plus the polygonal furniture that seems to float like icebergs on the dark oak floor.

The ceiling-mounted lamps, also designed by KINZO, were specially manufactured for this project by, the German specialist in individual lighting solutions “Made in Germany”.”

'Kaufhaus Tyrol' by David Chipperfield Architects, photo by Ute Zscharnt

David Chipperfield Architects recently finished a new Department Store ‘Kaufhaus Tyrol’ in Innsbruck, Austria. Here are some first photos of the multifaceted front of the building.

“In a prime downtown location, the largest city centre department store in Tyrol is emerging on the Maria-Theresien-Strasse. The new building covers the site of the former ‘Kaufhaus Tyrol’ that expands from Maria-Theresien-Strasse over the whole block to Erlerstrasse. The neighbouring existing building, the former ‘Schindlerhaus’, is being integrated into the project while conserving the overall ensemble. The new department store fits into and respects the existing context of the Maria-Theresien-Strasse.”

“With three façade areas at a slight incline to each other, the long, stretched front of the new building is structured without losing its artistic and creative appearance. The structure of the Maria-Theresien-Strasse, which has grown irregularly since the Middle Ages, is reflected in the façade line-up of the new department store. The main entrance, situated in the centre, is subtly emphasised by the central part of the building being positioned forward and facing the Old Town and the pedestrian zone. Façade pillars form the main tectonic characteristic of the building. The façade structure is made of prefabricated concrete sections offset with natural stone. Room-height window apertures cover all storeys and act as mediators between the new Kaufhaus Tyrol and the historic environment.”
