Sweet dreams are made of this...

The doors are now closed to the Sweet Shoppe...

Open for business for just two weeks during the London Design Festival we have received some fantastic reviews from those who completed the experience.

We collaborated with our friends at The Future Laboratory to create a one-off interactive installation which would allow us to share and explore our ideas about the future of retail. A touch of magic, intimacy and theatre all played a part in creating the hyper-real experience which experimented with the relationship between and characteristics of online and in-store retailing.

Molecular Structure Window Display

French designer Arnold Goron has recently completed new window displays for french fashion designer Isabel Marant.
these special installations entitled 'molecular structure' can be found in the shops of Marant in Paris, New York,
Madrid, Beirut and Beijing.

For the scientifically derived window visuals, Goron has used a 'samba stick', a wood that has the lightness of balsa, but stronger,
which have been sharpened to a point like a pencil. The sticks are all connected by use of polystyrene balls forming the
large, abstract molecular structures. Goron has then added a motor over the hanging structures, making them spin around slowly
on featured window mannequins. In some of the installations, the mannequins are spinning in the opposite way that the structure
is moving, to give more of a visual effect.

Tsujita restaurant by Takeshi Sano

Japanese designer takeshi sano has created a ceiling design, using thousands of wooden sticks, in the tsujita restaurant in los angeles, california.

Designers own words:

i put image of clouds for the ceiling detail. there is IZUMO shrine, one of the most important shrine in shimane, japan. the clouds we can see there, has beauty but mysterious image. i wanted to show those images on this design. i put 25,000 of wooden sticks, which was shaped like drum stick on the ceiling.
in order to increase a reality of clouds, i calculate the focal length between eye line and wooden sticks and use that length for the stick length. also, i made difference on the distance between stick each other so that to make a stereoscopic effect to wooden cloud. not only for this project. i'm always challenging to create a space that coexist art and interior. at the same time, i'd like people to feel the delicate of beauty which japanese have, and japanese atmosphere when they visit here so that they will think that they want to visit japan. i'd like to make this restaurant as one of an element for japanese reconstruction.

Hirata’s hats exhibition by Nendo

The graphic and exhibition design for the first major Japanese retrospective of internationally-known milliner Hirata Akio’s seventy years of work. For the exhibition space, we wanted to make Hirata’s hats stand out. The mass-produced non-woven fabric hats we created for the space are the antithesis of Hirata’s carefully handmade hats, and bring them into sharp relief through dramatic contrast. Hirata oversaw the shape of these hats, which float and stream through the exhibition like ghosts or shells of the real hats exhibited. Some are exhibition stands; others become walls, ceilings and diffusers to scatter 
light through the space. Flooded with roughly 4000 of these ‘ghost hats’ as though shrouded in a cloud, the exhibition space softly invites visitors inside. There, they find not clear-cut paths to follow but an environment in which they can wander and discover Hirata’s creations as they like, as a way of physically experiencing the creative freedom that underlies Hirata’s work.
