The processes of change throughout the retail sector have rapidly gained dynamism through the COVID-19 pandemic. In an unprecedented situation, social distancing has fuelled the integration of digital shopping functions and at the same time the yearning for real places of encounter. "Retail Design International" addresses these shifts and presents over 40 brave concepts that drive the retail shift forwards. The editor Dr. Jons Messedat is an architect, designer and author. His expertise in the building of corporate identity is in demand among global companies, as a jury member in architecture and design competitions, as well as at universities in Germany, Switzerland and the USA.
Hybrid systems not only revolutionise our mobility but also provide a fresh breath of air in retailing with the layering of various functions. Large-format building structures such as department stores and shopping centres are revitalised in line with climate optimisation and supplemented with small-scale mixed uses. Shared spaces for young start-ups and established brands offer greater variety and the opportunity to liven up too extensive spaces with new experiences and inspirations. Retail sharing has developed into an effective recipe against decreasing frequenting.
The fifth edition of “Retail Design International” pursues the phenomenon of hybrid spaces between new work, leisure and retail worlds. It presents collaborative concepts from the European, Asian and Pacific regions that reveal opportunities for the transformation from a point of sale to a point of experience.
