"The EuroShop Retail Design Awards are unique in that they cultivate nominations from all seven continents and every year manage to find the best of the best in store design projects from design firms of all kinds. These awards help to promote retail store design beyond the design community and help to promote the importance of design to the entire global retail community. Most importantly the awards recognize excellence in design that is truly worthy of praise. The NRF is proud to support and encourage participation in this stellar awards program."

Award-winners 2012

TSVETNOY Central Market, Moscow, Russia
TSVETNOY Central Market, Moscow, Russia

Consistently positioned as a premium department store, TSVETNOY combines fashions and modern Russian and international art with foods and upscale catering and thus targets a steadily growing, affluent, trend- and fashion-conscious Russian audience.

To plan the store, the developer RGI International commissioned Russian architect Yuri Grigoryan along with the British designers HMKM and architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands. About 7,600 m² of pure selling space are spread over seven floors connected by two spectacular atriums, with a vertical garden extending to the topmost floors. However, the biggest eye-catcher inside the store is the hammered stainless steel ceiling and wall covering that reflects light, merchandise and customers to create an impressive atmosphere.

UNIQLO, Shanghai, China
UNIQLO, Shanghai, China

In May 2010 the Japanese clothing chain UNIQLO opened its biggest store to date, in Shanghai. On the strength of its spectacular dynamic merchandising it has been singled out to receive the 2012 EuroShop RetailDesign Award. Mobile mannequin installations make the interior "alive and active". Visible through the glazed façade, in the main entrance area mannequins rotate over customers' heads in acrylic tubes arranged in circles. The centre of the building contains the main attraction: a striking 20-metre high atrium with "flying mannequins" moving from top to bottom at a pace set by music. The whole concept as been developed by BCJ - Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, well known architects from Seattle.

U.Style Fashion - Galeria Kaufhof, Munich, Germany

The third store chosen to receive the 2012 EuroShop RetailDesign Award is Galeria Kaufhof's U.STYLE – a new, fresh, original Young Fashion concept of the big German department store company.

For this purpose a former storeroom in the sub-basement of the Galeria Kaufhof store on Munich's Marienplatz was turned into an interactive store for young people, designed exclusively by young architects and visual merchandisers from the house itself. Graffiti, a separate entrance to Munich's underground, and an interior in used look lend the 1,500 sqm retail space the desired "underground flair".
