5 Award Winning Retail Shop Designs

Designing a retail store requires innovation, 
a knowledge of human psychology, and a whole lot of creativity. 
In this article, we list down 5 examples of truly innovative retail shop 
designs that you might want to emulate or, at least, 
take some ideas and incorporate into your retail designs.

Kindo Children’s Boutique

Stepping into this Monterrey, Mexico-based children’s boutique, you will find yourself and your kids treated to a quirky buy fun interior space. The entire store is designed using the concepts of a didactic bead maze. Children get to learn all about the different geometric shapes and forms, thanks to the innovative store design by Anagrama.


Okomeya Rice Store – Japan

The Japanese have always been distinctive with their designs and ideas, and this shows in their take on minimalist design as seen on Okomeya Rice Store. These innovators transformed the first floor of a timber building in Tokyo into a well-lit yet neatly arranged rice store. The store is operated by Japanese company OWAN, and is part of a thrust to rejuvenate the district where the store is located.


FEIT Shoe Store – New York

The result is an almost hypnotic design, with patterns that give the appearance of texture. Props to designer Jordan Maisie.
Another example of an innovative retail store interior design can be found in FEIT’s newly opened West Village outlet in New York. When you enter, you will find unique shelves made from individual planks of wood arranged on top of each with small gap in between. They look like columns of horizontal window blinds, and in the middle of each column are FEIT’s products.


Miu Miu – Aoyama District, Tokyo, Japan

Herzog and De Meuron teamed up with Italy-based shoemaker Miu Miu to revamp the retailer’s Aoyama District outlet in Tokyo, Japan. The result is an interior design concept that ups the ante in giving customers space for movement and relaxation. The design maximizes space, accessibility of the products, and comfort. Add in an excellent color scheme, and this is one shoe shop you will want to visit for ambience alone.


Book Center in Trieste, Italy

SoNo Architects in Italy certainly gave competitors a run for their money when it unveiled the design for the Slovenian Book Center in Trieste.  SoNo’s interior designers transformed a 177-square meter space into a masterpiece, featuring seemingly endless lines of bookshelves that hug the walls, leaving a huge space for reading and sitting. The interior design combines with a historical façade that looks straight out of the Renaissance, thus setting the mood for reading and learning.


Of course, interior design is not the only thing that matters when designing a shop or any living space. For retailers, they can combine good interior design with excellent marketing techniques like free giveaways. Shopping bags are great viral marketing tools to give to your customers—contact Smartbag to learn how you can use them to your advantage.
