The design concept comes from a drop of water. Through digital parametric modeling, a sea of acrylic spheres were created to form an intricate ceiling installation. The overall layout abandoned the Cartesian grid and took on a polar grid, permeating radially from the entrance of the shop. Twelve “tree lights” were installed to give reflective lighting to the acrylic spheres, creating a new visual language seldom seen in commercial interiors. RFID technology was adopted in all of the merchandise display shelves to offer a new model of shopping that truly belongs to the future.
