Mod Moments in Palm Springs CA.

Featured

Modernism Week-It’s a thing in sunny Palm Springs California and we were so happy to be a part of this iconic Mid-Century celebration!

Architects in the likes of Albert Frey, Michael Black, E. Stewart Williams, Walter White, Craig Ellwood, Richard Neutra and James McNaughton are just a few of the mid-century greats that helped turn Palm Springs into the Mid-Century destination it is today!

So much fun visiting Maison a l’Orange, Moroccan House, Hidden Frey and West Elm Pool House to see varying styles of architecture as well as interior design. Safe to say that orange, hot pink and turquoise are the “go to” colors of Palm Springs.‬

Kinetic Store Design | The new trend in VM

Lets put it in motion! As retail spaces are getting smaller, designers have to be more and more creative about what to do with all of the store’s product. The new design trend is building up, kinetically. Stores are bringing their displays to life while maximizing space in a small square footage. Conveyor belts and moving clothing rails are automated and add an entertainment factor. Going beyond that, displays can also hold stock in the ceiling area to free up premium floor space below.

Here are a few examples of the coolest kinetic stores right now

MCM’s latest concept store in Seoul has a conveyor belt, touch screen installations, and robotic displays.

Aether store in San Fran stacked 3 shipping containers on top of each other and created a conveyor system to carry stock between all 3 floors.

Dolce & Gabanna used kinetic design in creating a ceiling that can descend to create a special VIP room within the space.

Our favorite! Check out this moving display on our Insta @designworksinternational from Descente Blanc in Tokyo. They created a unique stock display system that can be lowered depending on what the shopper is looking for. This same practice can also be found in their larger Fukuoka Store, creating a striking visual impact.
