Ole grocery store by rkd retail/iQ, Shen Zhen

December 15th, 2011 by retail design blog

A.R.E. Awards – Supermarket/Grocery Store – Grand Prize

With a simple and sophisticated collection of color and materials to support the upscale positioning of the brand, this grocer is so clean and visually appealing that it feels more like a high-end department store. Exposed ceilings covered with plastic laminates are punctuated with light features on internally illuminated acrylic.

Above the fruit and vegetable display is a polished, stainless steel ceiling tile that defines the circular ceiling with a cylindrical, two-sided super-graphic lightbox. Fixtures feature a mix of plastic laminate, solid surface, powdercoated metal, brushed and polished stainless steel, glass, and composite stone slabs, with surfaces incorporating plastic laminates, ceramic tile, glass, paint, or large-format graphics.
