Streetology by Facet studio, Sydney

August 16th, 2011 by retail design blog

Within plastic tubes of standardized 100mm diameter, tee shirts are stored and merchandised. Within dispensers of standardized 100mm wide by 1500mm high, a maximum of 15 plastic tubes are stored and displayed. Then by repeating the dispensers by 170 times, we are now able to display a maximum of 2,550 tee shirts. If we sell one tee shirt, one plastic tube disappears from the dispenser.

We designed a system of dispensers and tubes to visualize commerciality; although on its own, the stock quantity of the tee shirts fluctuates vertically within the individual dispenser unit, however after 170 repeats this fluctuation forms a “pattern” horizontally across the dispensers.

There is no such field of study called “Streetology”; but this shop is a visual reflection of the street trend. It creates excitement by drawing a parallel between the shopping experience, and the act of flipping through pages of magazine asking oneself, “I wonder what is popular now on the streets!”
