The R.sole concept was to create a prototype for a high end sneaker boutique designed as a gallery space with the shoe collector in mind. Custom wall displays consist of various LED color-changing showcase niches and other elements organized in geometric patterns reinforcing the overall feeling of “museum” and “art gallery”. The dark gray finish of the millwork, walls, floor and ceiling surround lighted displays and create dramatic contrast, enhancing the art gallery atmosphere and highlighting the colorful merchandise. Freestanding translucent acrylic display panels rotate and lock in place as required in order to transform the space and create flexibility in merchandising.
