40 Retail Concept Designs

From Illusory Retail Shops to Serene Retail Experiences

— February 6, 2019 — Art & Design
In recent years, retail concept design has been significantly refined and perfected by businesses. Recognizing the power and growing consciousness of consumers, companies are looking toward hybridization, convenience-focused arrangements and immersive environments to draw attention to physical store locations.

To accentuate the aesthetics of the retail concept design, many brands are tapping artists for in-store installations that sometimes bear educational value. For example, Olderbrother's Venice shop features a shroom-themed display that hints at the ethical and sustainable advantages of fungi. Other shops are more sensory oriented — from Lemonade Studio's illusory interior to Eduard Eremchuk's fuzzy store decor.

Another accelerating movement with regard to retail concept design is the approach of combining multiple services under one roof — this includes a space that boasts a shop, a cafe, and a co-working space, one that combines a shop, a tea bar, a lounge room, and a restaurant, as well as a coffee-floral store combination.
