Current challenges in retail design, such as the increasing digiti- zation and the merging of online and offline platforms, have led to altogether new forms of retail and of their spatial expression. This is what this new yearbook takes a look at. t provides a current overview of innovations in multi-channel commerce, from pioneering in-store technology to new pro- ducts, materials and lighting solutions at the point of sale. More than 50 current examples of best practice, from temporary pop- up stores and avant-garde brand worlds to hybrid retail centers, present an inspiring international cross section.
