Called 9 Department Store and Gallery, the space is divided by wooden strand-board into an office and display space.

Stock is displayed on wheeled trolleys and shelves that can be easily dismantled, meaning the shop can be packed into the office quickly when the space is required for another function.

Here's some more information from Case-Real:


9 DEPARTMENT STORE & GALLERY

"Adaptable ready-made rack" - Space design for fashion retailer.

9 Department Store and Gallery by Case-Real

The backspace can be used as an office, and the main space as a shop or a gallery.

The main floor space can also be adapted for occasions such as shows or parties. This is a suggestion from the owner.

Not to mention, it is indispensable that the lighting and the image equipment should be adaptable for occasions.

Additionally, since the main usage of the space is for retail, the key fixture is the display rack. Therefore, it was desirable to make the rack flexible.

Our solution was to use the inexpensive ready-made racks for factories or warehouses with additional appropriate processing.

The rack is suitable for various uses. It is easy to remove the ready-made shelves and the additional custom-made parts such as mirrors and hangers and you can store all the stuff in the space made in the back office in five minutes. This simplicity means minimum stress.
