RIGI Design, led by Liu Kai, has completed new retail space for kids in the city of Hubei Province, China, which changes children's fashion business by creating a new social relationship between children and parents. Titled 'Be Kids for One Moment', the interior space consists of many modularized furnitures and fixtures in order to provide maximum flexibility, comfort and playful environment, which form new behavioural patterns -both physically and psychologically.
The designers observed the lifestyle and needs of people and to sense the change of the trends at the beginning of design process. For Be Kids for One Moment project, RIGI did a number of researches of children fashion. Different from adult fashion, the fact is that the behavior of children clothes shopping is controlled by parents.
In this context, children's fashion business is built on a kind of social relationship. Designer thus developed a key word of this project, which is trust. The basic design approach was to deliver a clean, pure and joyful space, a trust atmosphere by increasing the display efficiency and control the materials and color, create an attractive retail space with home feeling.
RIGI designed a member zone and kids experience zone strategically to increase the customers' loyalty. The member could found children side-line products such as stationery in reasonable price. And lots of interesting details are added to several corners, a height mark on the wall, and a blackboard paint wall for children doodling. All of these design details are results of designers' thinking, which is how to build the connection between the brand and the customers.
The scale of fixture is tailored to fit both adults and children. Following the products' category logic, several different spectacular space groups are formed by serial of modularized fixture. The fixtures themselves are becoming a part of the space. At the same time, all of the hard edges are chamfered to protect children.
Designers tried to understand the world from children's perspective. A pure simple house shape is widely used on POP, fixtures and feature walls to suggest the concept of "home". Because children are highly sensitive to number, the different single numbers are printed on several obvious places to enhance the spatial order of zoning.
Material-wise, designer chose common stuffs such as felt, tile. The warm and gentle touch of timbers combining with naïve color, designer composed a fairytale space for children. In RIGI's design approach, the visual elements are infectious. Illustrations are widely used in the space.
A serial of simple signs are easy for children understand. Vision, fixtures and behaviors are well integrated with the space. RIGI delivered an innovative experience to both the brand and the public.
