Data Info

Helsinki, Finland



To market “vaporware”–high-tech products and services–to the average consumer, designers created a graphically dynamic store that brings substance and clarity to three brands under one roof.

The three brands–information technology, cell-phone operations and wireless communications–were treated as separate worlds that converge in Data Info's nucleus. Wood flooring, curved ceiling elements, specialty lighting and shield-like signposts guide customers to graphic panels and monitors that describe the brands.

Vivid colors lure shoppers in and bold informational graphics simplify the products'technical aspects. Fixtures were kept simple and minimal to put the focus on graphics and product.
