The Revival Project

GlobalShop, Chicago



The Revival Project showroom in the Visual Merchandising Show at GlobalShop 2001 was a 2500-square-foot fantasyland. Spearheaded by Lonnie Hanzon of Hanzon Studios (Denver), the exhibit offered six lively retail display vignettes showing a range of styles, materials and techniques that showgoers could incorporate into their own visual merchandising operations. Among the displays were Jeff Thornton's Wild West Collection, a vignette styled as a Victorian western showing gifts and memorabilia with earthtones, copper and metallic gold as a backdrop; Alchemy and the Hidden Jewel, inspired by the look of underwater Atlantis as a showcase for jewelry; Stun Inc., which presented wearable art and accessories in a modernized version of art nouveau; and Pump & Boots, a presentation of footwear in a Hollywood Glam setting.

A Salon area at the exhibit's center provided a welcoming place for attendees to gather and converse. Hanzon noted, “The Revival Project was intended to inspire as well as showcase products currently available. The ideas are all free. Final execution just depends on how much creativity you use.” Design Team: Hanzon Studios Inc., Denver – Lonnie Hanzon, president and creative director; Terry Koepsel, vp, finance and general manager; Jayne Harnett-Hargrove, Pam Gray and Woody Taylor, senior designers; Louise Bartel, visiting designer; Madalyn Shalkey, designer
