Sony Ericsson

ISP/VM+SD Store Design Competition Winner



Sony Ericsson’s first store features a compelling, no-pressure, non-technical environment intended to attract a broad range of consumers. A floor-to-ceiling glass storefront and bright, color-changing fascia in the brand’s signature color palette (purple, red and green) add visual impact from the get-go.

Inside, ergonomic forms, vibrant colors and a light aesthetic reflect the design philosophy of the Japanese/Swedish brand. For example, the store’s architectural focal point is the infinity bar – a white, sculpted, oval display where customers can sample and learn more about the products. And perimeter merchandising is delineated by colorful displays that are inset, angled, and illuminated from above and below.
