A.R.E Awards – Pop-up Store – Grand Prize

Eyewear from the Beginning to the Future, Grand Central Terminal, New York City

Designers of this unique eyewear display set up to rethink the glass display case “as a fractured but still iconic and representative model of movement and connection in urban spaces.” A large, abstracted convex glass lens was cut by a series of vectors connecting various architectural and programmatic elements in Vanderbilt Hall. The shattering of the glass created cracks and fissures that led to a deeper labyrinthine “city of information.” Graphic surfaces, created by adding film layers and fluorescent backlit surfaces, present a uniform illuminated background for the display of the delicate and detailed items, text, and graphics.

Design: Giorgio Borruso Design
