Happy Birthday Mies!

He died 42 years ago, but his steel and glass buildings can be found around the world. He was born in Aachen, Germany in 1886. Along with Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier, Mies was regarded as one of the masters of modern architecture.

Professional Beauty Show 2012

A little taste of our most recent project…

We have just designed a retail experience at the 2012 Professional Beauty show at London’s ExCeL for our Harley Street Skin Clinic client. It has been a great success and we will be uploading all the Lovely work to our website over the next few days. We designed the interactive space along with an app whereby consumers could instantly win £1000 worth of treatments through fully integrated data capture and Facebook Like.

More to come very soon – watch this space!

Nike+ Fuelstation

Nike is opening its first-ever Nike+ Fuelstation outlet at the world’s first pop-up mall, Boxpark in Shoreditch.

Designed in-house by the Nike brand design team in The Netherlands, the new space ‘mixes the human and the digital world’, according to Andy Walker, global design director at Nike.

‘It’s unlike any other Nike store – we’re changing the way we do retail.’

The Fuelstation, which is installed across nine Boxpark crates, features augmented reality, interactive information screens and digital mannequins.

The entrance area features a wall that reacts when visitors walk past, changing from green to red, as well as an area which uses Kinect technology to create an avatar ‘portrait’ of the visitor, which can then be uploaded to social media (watch this space for Lovely Neil’s video!). There are also iPads and digital mannequin ‘mirrors’, in which digital characters model clothes.

There is space for a running consultant and a physio, while the upper level features further Nike products.

‘It’s not a traditional retail space – it’s more of a brand showcase, and it also works as a community hub.’ The space will be a meeting place for Nike running clubs.

The Nike+ Fuelstation opens next week, definitely one to check out.

Under Water, Under Ground

Dutch design duo Million Dollar Design were commissioned by the Amsterdam Public Transport Company to facelift one of the 30 year old ‘Silver Gull’ subway trains and this is the glorious result. The pair took on 2 carriages and decorated them with underwater fantasy illustrations of mermaids, jelly fish and other sea life creatures. The whole thing has a dreamy romantic feel, but with a rough, edgy dark finish which is truly beautiful. I wish TFL would do something similar and brighten up our dingy tube trains…

NIKE FLAGSHIP STORE HARAJUKU

This is the new Niketown in japan. Lovely use of materials and clever detailing as always. The design concept for Nike’s first flagship store in Tokyo, which also happens to be the largest in the nation at 946 square meters, is a playing field. It is an experience-based store with facilities such as the Runner’s Studio for selecting shoes that match the individual’s feet and running style and the NIKEiD STUDIO. The interior also expresses the joy of sports by integrating characteristically NIKE items such as the shoes for the chandelier and the waffle molds of the outsoles as a decorative element for a wall. The surrounding environment to the foot traffic flow from the Omotesando street where the store is located has been well considered in the store layout and the interior design resulting in two entrances on both sides of the store.
