RETROKIT CROSS Eyeware Concept Store by NBDC, Seoul – South Korea

June 16th, 2015 by retail design blog

“RETROKIT” inspired by RETROROCKET, is an eyewear concept store which took its motif from a variety of needs situated at their extremes such as various cultures, past and future, and reverse and advance. It is the third store in Seoul, South Korea, selling domestic eyewear brands, clothes, and bags. The client wanted RETROKIT to be expressed as an intuitive and intimate interpretation of the subject of the cross and white inspired by Berlin, and exchanged opinions with the designer. The designer completed the space based on the inspiration (underwater, articles for ship) from the submarine (artwork of Hannam Store) while faithfully trying to meet the demands of the client and the essentials.


RETROKIT CROSS is a shop-in-shop store of the Cafe Alver located in the hillside of Gangnam Station. The design was developed considering that it was only for the installation work based on the previous background such as wood flooring and a large light.
