Judges loved the simplicity of this retail environment that used materials and space to create an upscale impression focused on the brand and marketing for the mobile communications retailer. Targeting two key customer groups, fashion and business, designers created a relaxing, informative and welcoming spare to contrast with the cutting edge merchandise and services. Designers created focal points in its sculptural cellular wall and its "runway" fixtures that provided open-sell solutions in a way that was user-friendly and interactive to consumers. New signature colors, branding, and graphics incorporate a neutral pattern to create a serene space, allowing the merchandise to stand out.
