The Korean beauty brand Skinfood teamed up with the digital media company Centdegrés to create a high-tech concept store in Seoul. In recent years, a number of brands have begun adding interactive features to their stores in an effort to enhance consumer engagement. This concept shop demonstrates how technology can be used alongside cosmetics to provide a more hands-on shopping experience.
The Skinfood beauty bar is located in Seoul's ritzy Garosugil neighborhood, which is home to many popular Korean beauty brands. The concept shop is larger than the brand's other retail outlets and features several high-tech touches that help to enhance the shopping experience. Amidst the products are touchscreen tablets that allow customers to scan different items and view animated videos telling the story of each ingredient used. There are also digital wall displays that feature social media content in real time.
The interactive beauty bar gives consumers a unique opportunity to interact with Skinfood's cosmetics and learn more about the brand's commitment to using nourishing ingredients.
