Found an interesting article about new directions in retail design written by Simon Keane-Cowell for Architonic. Read it here.
He talks about how physical retail spaces develops as the competition with e-commerce increase. He also shows examples of how different shops have transformed their spaces into a memorable experience that both challenge and engage their customers.
I really like this development where store owners actually realize the benefits of good design and how it can revitalise a store. Hopefully it will spread to other areas of design and architecture, especially here in Sweden.
