Description

Very Small Shops

The limitations of a tiny space, rather than inhibiting designers, often result in some of the most innovative and exciting retail design. While small shops offer the chance for famous designers to experiment and showcase their skills for the retailers who can afford them, other independent retailers will be competing for the same customers and looking for ideas to implement on their own.

This book brings together some of the best recent, innovative examples of small store designs from around the world. All the shops measure less than 1,600 square feet (many much less), and are grouped by size, with explanations and tips from their designers. Types of outlet featured include fashion, accessories, opticians, technology, food, and confectionery. The book is divided into three sections: small shops, smaller shops, and tiny shops. Each section begins with an interview with a designer of a small shop, explaining the creative opportunities and difficulties in greater detail. This book will be inspirational for retail designers and small shop owners looking to create their own big statement in a small space.
