22 Drugstore Design Innovations

From Sterile Pharmacy Interiors to Storytelling Skincare Displays

— August 31, 2015 — Lifestyle
These drugstore design innovations range from pop art pharmacies to virtual retail displays that deliver hygienic and household products to consumers' doors. In addition to pushing design boundaries -- pharmacies have becoming more synonymous with experiential architecture in recent years -- these examples also cater to niche demographics.

Whether referencing the vintage apothecary model or dabbling with intuitive technology, modern drugstore designs are more sensory than ever before. Standouts include storytelling skincare and nail polish displays by interactive retail brand Perch. The company specializes in intuitive and experiential display methods and dazzles consumers with touchscreen-powered kiosks that offer product info and a memorable brand story.

Other favorites include clinical cannabis dispensaries that mimic retro pharmacies along with futuristic drugstore interiors that replace sterile design elements with galactic and whimsical details. Overall, these examples are reflective of society's growing acceptance of illness and the treatment for various health conditions. What was once a private visit to the pharmacy for many is now a shopping trip for not only medicine but also a myriad of other household items and beauty products.
