基于空间原始状态所带来的灵感,LOOKNOW新天地旗舰店以“进行中的创造-House Now”为主题故事线,传达空间的叙事性和体验的沉浸感,打造强烈识别度的当代设计风格。其中以“现场作品-Live Artwork”和“居住现场-Resident In”两部分为核心主线,结合新天地特有的场地属性,赋予消费者特有的线下消费体验。

Inspired by the original status of space, Sò Studio recently launched the LOOKNOW Xintiandi flagship store. Through the storyline of “House Now”, Sò Studio conveys the narrative of the space and the immersive experience to create a strong identity of the contemporary design style. The key design components “Live Artwork” and “Resident In” combine with the unique cultural quality of Xintiandi provides a special shopping experience for the customers.

The new flagship store of LOOKNOW locates in Xintiandi phaseⅡ, which locates on Madang Road Shanghai. The store facade is decorated with ginger color and simple geometric composition to emphasize the overall visual effect and enhance the brand identity to create a new landmark for urban girls.

Sò Studio通过对原有的空间区域规划与整合,将整体空间划分为三大部分:形象展示区、主要陈列空间、以及配饰区。满足LOOKNOW作为全球设计师品牌集合空间,对不同品牌与产品的展示及陈列的功能,以及可以在店铺内随时更换场景从而举办不同活动需求。

By holistically planning the space, Sò Studio re-organized the store into three parts, the window exhibition area, major display area, and accessories area. LOOKNOW, as a global designer assemble store, requires flexibility to be able to display different brands and products, as well as holds different events and changes the scene accordingly at any time.

形象展示区的黄色框架,即“空间物体-Space Object”;像是从什么地方搬运进来的一个盒子,是Sò Studio表达现场创作很重要的一部分。通过在入口空间处置入与外立面相呼应的黄色框架从而达到空间的连接与视觉的呼应和统一。黄色的框架结构与店铺的其他空间形成反差,同时又贯穿整个空间。它既是整个空间的视觉焦点又是空间连接的纽带,使消费者在不同风格的空间之间穿梭时也不会感到突兀。

The yellow frame installed in the window exhibition area is the “Space Object”. The frame looks like a box transported from elsewhere is an important aspect of “Live Artwork” that Sò Studio emphasized. The yellow frame, which has the same color as the facade, is not only a visual connection but also to separate the different zones. It is a visual focal point and a connector of the whole space, to create a smooth and seamless transition going from one zone or style to the next.

“空间物体-Space Object”的置入使店铺的前场变成一个可以灵活使用的空间;为日后品牌合作的快闪空间、装置以及多媒体艺术展示提供了更多可能性。在保留店铺原有属性的同时,增加话题度与新鲜感。

The “Space Object” installed in the window exhibition area transforms the front area of the store into a flexible space, providing the possibility of future collaboration with other brands and artists for pop-ups, installation displays, and media shows. While keeping the original function of the store, it helps to attract more attention and keep the freshness of the store and brand.

品牌主要陈列空间分为两个部分:“现场作品-Live Artwork” 和 “居住现场-Resident In”。

The major display area includes two parts, “Live Artwork” and “Resident In”.

“现场作品-Live Artwork”的部分,通过开放空间的概念,还原艺术家在艺术创作时工作室的状态。从空间右侧的收银区为起点围绕整个空间一周,从充满现代感有明显人为痕迹的视觉氛围过渡到原始和粗糙空间肌理。例如墙面上由设计师即兴创作的绷布艺术品,增加空间的艺术调性,同时也是代表空间调性的“美学物件- Aesthetics Object”。

“Live Artwork” is a concept of open space to mimic the status of an artist’s studio. From the start point of the reception, space is transforming from a sense of modern and artificial into the original and rough space texture. For example, the fabric artwork on the wall created by the designer on site has added an aesthetics sense to the store, at the same time, it is also a representative of an “Aesthetics Object”.

As the biggest structure in the store, the fitting room is located in the center of the display area. The fabric hanging upon the fitting room helps to visually separate the space and soften the light.

The fitting room centered design units the fitting, displaying, and lounge function together. Meanwhile, the circulation is spread out around this space.

老房子中拆除下来的有几十年历史的老木头以及从石材厂就地“捡”回来的碎石道具等,都在空间中被重新赋予新的功能。Sò Studio通过保留原有的历史痕迹创作出属于现在新的“痕迹”。这种保留与创作既是空间故事的延续,也是对进行中创作的记录。

Antique doors kept from the old house and the random rocks picked from the quarry are serving both aesthetic and functional purposes. By retaining the historical traces, Sò Studio creates new trace belonging to the present. This kind of retaining and creation is not only the continuation of the space story but also the record of the ongoing creation.

“居住现场-Resident In”旨在还原艺术家居住的状态,像是一个起居室。木质材料,搭配暖色调以及低色温灯光烘托出相对私密的高级感的氛围。沙发、地毯与衣柜式的衣架这种场景化的布置,表达出Sò Studio所强调的故事性与沉浸感。虽然不具备居住的属性,但却给人想要长时间停留的状态。

“Resident in” is a privative concept to recreate the conditions of where the artist lives, likes a living room. Wood texture, warm yellow color, and low color temperature lighting are used at the store to generate a relatively private and deluxe atmosphere. The setting of sofa, carpet, and clothes-like racks expresses the story and immersion emphasized by Sò Studio. Although it is not meant to be lived in, it presents what a lived-in space looks like.

The designers intentionally painted the walls in blue unevenly to create a peeling or crackling appearance. The restrained and tuned-down choices of color give a sense of comfort and privacy to the space.

配饰区延续外立面相同的颜色基调,异形与夸张造型的展示柜陈列其中。发射台落地灯,定制图案的地毯,展示柜斑驳的细节处理体现出 “故意”的创作。

Accessories area is using the same ginger color as the store facade. The abnormal and exaggerated display cabinets are placed here. A standing lamp that looks like a launch pad, customer carpet, and the mottled treatment on the cabinet tells the story of “on purpose” creation.

Exposed brick walls and structural steel and traces of the decorations that were put in place by previous owners are kept in place. Abandoned pipes were rearranged and turned into racks for handbags. Retaining and repurposing the existing conditions and introducing new elements form the “on-going” design concept of the store.

Sò Studio intentionally blurs the boundary between used and new by re-purposing used materials in new designs to create a style that is unique to LOOKNOW. The space, then, becomes a vessel for stories that the used materials carried with them. But the old stories are told in creative ways that incidentally match the overall cultural quality of Xintiandi.
