Shipping Container Store Holds Inventory On Revolving Clothes Rack [Video]

Aether has installed a custom-built, three-story rotating system designed to save space in an unconventional shop.

Most stores keep the majority of their inventory in a store room in the back, bringing items out when someone needs a different size than what’s on the shop floor. Most stores are also made of more permanent materials– but California-based outerwear company Aether has created an innovative solution for both a new brick-and-mortar store in San Francisco as well an inventory management. The store is made of 3 recycled shipping containers, stacked on top of each other like LEGOs. To save room in the narrow space, they replaced the traditional ‘back inventory’ area with a custom-built three-story revolving clothing rack.

Inside the store, customers can browse the store’s entire inventory by activating the rack and looking at the items as they pass by. They can also request a specific item using a dial pad.

Cool Hunting interviewed Aether co-founders Palmer West and Jonah Smith to discuss the store’s inspiration and their video below gives us a good look at the innovative inventory system:
