Statements

 

Jerzy Woźniak
Architect (Modelina Architekci), Poznan (Poland)

"Being one of three winners of Euroshop Retail Design Award has been a huge surprise for us. It is the best proof that strong, holistic and coherent ideas allow to create a memorable and interesting retail space, no matter the size of the shop or popularity of the brand. The award itself became an impulse for a short and intense trip to Shanghai to attend the glamorous rooftop gala. Thank you!"  

 

Ken Nisch
Chairman (JGA), Southfield (USA)

“To be included in such a rarified group of brands, retailers, and innovators was most exciting for the JGA team. We thank EuroShop RetailDesign Awards for this important and coveted award. The ability to work with great partners, The Hershey Company, Canadian Niagara, and the MGM group, was a key element not only of the professional satisfaction, but of the creative energy that is so much part of the Hershey’s Chocolate World Las Vegas experience.”

 

Dan Butler
Former Vice President National Retail Federation (NRF), Washington D.C. (USA)

"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."

 

Ignaz Gorischek
Vice President, Store Development Neiman Marcus Properties Group

De Vinos y Viandas, Valladolid/Spain

De Vinos y Viandas seems like a big illusion within small place and is an extraordinary example for an unusual 35 sqm wine store. The concept of this space arises from the search for a reference to a world as represented as wine and its sales spaces. The attempt was to abstract the formal wine world in a manner which the space is created as a continuous formal changer only using pure shapes such as the circumference. The juxtaposition of several circumferences in both directions creates a space, which will be seen as vaults, where the required shop areas with their equipment appear organically. These different aspects of the store merge in harmony with the used materials and the mirror reflections atmosphere.

The space changes itself from the point of view of the client when they enter the shop and walk inside. The mirror reflections create a curious blurry image that works hand in hand with the concept. The furniture is also interactive, there is one folding table assembled to the central column which provides a flexible space to its mobility.

La Rinascente, Rome/Italy

In its 150 years history, la Rinascente has enjoyed moments of great success and has become a point of reference for high quality shopping. In October 2017 Rinascente opened a second flagship store in Rome.
After a complex renovation work that lasted 11 years, the new store occupies a completely refurbished building in Via del Tritone adding value to the already rich historical and cultural heritage of the area.

The most extraordinary feature is the archaeological site that can be visited on floor -1. The site brings to light the remains of the Aqua Virgo aqueduct inaugurated by Augustus in 19 BC. Aqua Virgo still works nowadays, after twenty centuries, and feeds almost all of the most impressive fountains of the centre. The store also incorporates a small building dating back to the 1900s called the Palazzetto.
Each of the five floors has been designed by a different architect but all of them are perfectly harmonising with Rome and its history. The entire department store is taking the customer on a journey that captures the senses and mind.

VÈLO7, Poznan/Poland

VÈLO7 is a group of bicycle enthusiasts who want to share their passion with others: “We can race, ride and ramble on about them all the time. Bicycles definitely get us going.” Interested in offering best quality bicycles to their customers, they have decided to create a unique place in Poznan that would reflect their common fascination.

The cyclists needed a multifunctional space which could easily accommodate the functions of a bike shop, service and repair and a place for bike testing. Knowing that in VÈLO7 it is all about two-wheelers, the designers tapped into bicycle inspirations. The triangular forms and slant surfaces used throughout the interior refer to the shape of the bicycle frame. Its characteristic geometry was also translated into specially designed bike racks, which resulted in additional space for bike presentation. The ground plan of the entire store provides for the ultimate, albeit slightly concealed, cycling-related element.
The store focuses on professional road bikes, also time-trial and triathlon bikes, as well as cross-country and track bikes.
