OWEN store by Tacklebox, New York

May 25th, 2012 by retail design blog

Designed by New York-based architect Jeremy Barbour of Tacklebox Arhitecture, ‘OWEN’, a new boutique which offers a fusion of emerging designer clothes is about to open in the meatpacking district of New York City. Responding to the inherent nature of the industrial space, approximately 25,000 brown paper bags surface the continuous wall and ceiling plane.

Arching overhead, the rows of stacked bags result with a delicate honeycomb pattern which forms a textured partition. Enveloping the space, the installation intends to revitalize the recently lost pastime of in-store shopping, creating a warm atmosphere for shoppers.

Industrial details are found within the store, maintaining an exposed brick wall. Racks for clothes are formed with blackened steel hang-bars which have been inset into the concrete floor. Accessories and jewelry are displayed upon quartz slab tables and within glass vitrine cases. The crisp lines of the furniture contrast the lightness of the paper arch beyond.
