STOREROOM

Work: creative direction, ideation, curation, implementation
Date: 2008/2009

 Storeroom is part of an ongoing engagement in rogue retail practices. The five week long pop up department store was a response to the mundanity of the high street and the financial meltdown of late 2008. I partnered with twelve brands in providing the most unique and exciting retail offer for the holidays. From conception to opening in three weeks, the last day of the five week long store was the transformation of walls and display into a one night restaurant.
