The concept of the futuristic proceeding


When one’s perspective is drawn towards the “tunnel-shape unit” and starts to be driven by “relativity” empowered in the overall design, the proceeding of the future becomes slow and obvious. The lines presented in the space absorbs the medium, rapidly extending backwards in a certain motion and blurring the peripheral boundaries, while the random fracture sections of the tailor-made units or the installations restore the discontinuity of the independent object in reality. The variables of all the spots and light in the interior are balanced out of the composition, in order to ensure that patrons could probe into the essence of the current or the future’s abstractions under the unfolding of one’s staring status in the “proceeding”.

The design and the funtion of the space

在概念店的布局规划中,Some Thoughts认为空间之间应该有自然渗透的能力,内外空间缺一便无法立足。斜向的阵列柜体将空间切分为前后场,这样空间处理方式也正是缘由产品陈列产生的真实需求。设计构思上,设计师将内穿属性的商品放置于定制的柜体中,主动回避了选购时的尴尬;而复购率高的商品则置于前场的巨大的弧形装置中,以更友好的方式提供给大众心理和物理上的全面探索。

When planning the Bananain Concept Store, Some Thoughts conceive that space should be equipped with the ability to infiltrate naturally, and the indoors are inseparable with the outdoors, equally vital. The display cabinets arranged in oblique array divide the space into front and back fields, which meets the practical demand for showcasing Bananain’s products. In thinking how to house different products, a number of customized cabinets are introduced to store underwears, avoiding any inevitable embarrassments that may occur. The commodities with high re purchase rate are placed in the huge arc-shaped unit in the front atrium, providing the public with a comprehensive psychological and physical exploration in a more friendly way.

The combination of streamline geometry with spatial layers


The geometric system applied in the interior aims to deviate its rigidity, further activating the interactions between consumers and the site. Exploring deeper into the Concept Store, one can feel the superposition of different texture embedded in the space, for example, the walls, the installations and the carefully-designed units, transforming the experience as well as the inclusiveness of urban landacape into heterogeneous space with realistic design power. With people meander fast or slow in the store, the scenario are constantly superimposed, disappeared or generated, an order appears in the form of individual’s visiting experience.

The balance of materials and conceptions


The assemblage of geometric abstraction is achieved by designers’ experiments in unconventional lines and materials. In the end, the dual aspects of aluminum’s strength and flexibility has made it the relatively ideal material for re-processing and alternating for sensory invasiveness, yet the combination of rammed earth and acrylic have relieved this dramatic conflict. The interaction of materials, scale and forms carve out the mark of “heavy” machinery for the “leisurely” experience of the individuals.

Some Thoughts设计的首家蕉内概念店位于深圳宝安壹方城内。作为一个“技术与设计驱动”的内衣品牌,蕉内专注于通过将面料科技、品质工艺、大数据反馈注入产品设计中,概念店的空间设计灵感也来源于蕉内产品设计所彰显的科技与秩序之感并蓄。设计师在空间内设计的装置道具相对凝固状态下,合理构建消费者与空间的相对驱动关系。

The first Bananain Concept Store designed by Some Thoughts is located in the Uniwalk Center of Baoan in Shenzhen. As a “technology and design driven” underwear brand, Bananain focuses on integrating fabric technology, quality mechanics and data feedback into product design. The design inspiration of the store also originates from the sense of technology and order interwoven in Bananain’s product design. The designer meticulously  create the driving relationship between patrons and the space in a relatively solidified status of the installations and units designed within.
