A concept retail environment for department store Bloomingdales in Santa Monica Place, California is using satellite dressing rooms and telephones to add convenience to the shopping experience. drop-down dressing pods supplement primary fitting rooms with airy, private spaces to try on clothes quickly without having to leave the sales floor.
