Illusory Retail

Brands employ illusions in the layout of their retail spaces

Implications - Brands are employing illusory designs in their brick-and-mortar spaces in order to enhance the overall customer experience. This shift caters to the consumer preference for experiential retail spaces, while giving brands some flexibility in cost due to the fact that these illusory designs can be constructed without the addition of tech, or entirely new services within stores.
Workshop Question - How could your brant employ illusory design in its products or retail spaces?
