Retail Interior As Sculpture: Richard Chai + Snarkitecture NYC Popup Store
With limited time and money, a collaboration between artist, architect and fashion designer results in a unique retail experience.
Fashion designer Richard Chai his first ever stand alone retail store yesterday in NYC. By no means typical, the temporary space is located in a shipping container underneath the High Line Park which formerly served at the real estate office for HL23. The shop is actually part of the Building Fashion installation series which partners fashion labels with architects to create innovative temporary retail environments. For this, the fourth round, Brooklyn-based Snarkitecture developed the store environment under a tight time line and with a budget of only $5,000.
