The cosmic elevator is the newest and most convenient means of transportation for entering the cosmic space in people’s imagination. This was inspired by high-speed elevators in skyscrapers. The cosmic elevator is not really a ladder, but a kind of passageway. Electromagnetic force is used to propel the elevator to rise against gravity.

This is a kind of fantasy for human beings to explore the universe and unknown areas. Such imagination is the driving force for the continuous progress and innovation of human history. It is also the spirit of cas：space’s continuous exploration and innovation of product strength. Therefore, the cas：space Shanghai flagship store hopes to bring this seemingly unconstrained idea into reality, so that customers can be in it and explore the unknown and expectant shopping experience together.

The cosmic elevator is a grand plan and concept, but this design is to integrate it into a space of 80 square meters, which is a very challenging task. In the end we set the scene narrative to the starting point of the cosmic elevator. Define our products as “cas： substances” that need to be transported. It needs to go through a series of scenes and actions such as waiting, security check, service center, transportation, etc. before starting to the end. Such a process is also like a product that needs to go through layers of checkpoints from the beginning of production to the end of the consumer, so that customers can experience the best quality products.

In the end, we coherently set all the scenes into such a condensed space, and at the same time combined a large number of screens with visual content, presenting a story that is enough for people to believe. The most important thing is that all products of the brand are reasonably implanted into different functional blocks and scenes. The ultimate goal of building space scenes is to allow customers to have a more comfortable shopping experience and highlight product value. In this way, the brand presents a brand new image in the market.
