VM&RD - - VM-RD RETAIL DESIGN AWARDS 2014 -

Apopular land­mark in South Ban­ga­lore which started its jour­ney as a video rental li­brary 30 years ago, Chan­nel 9 grad­u­ally pro­gressed to sell­ing mo­biles from 2000. Tak­ing on a whole new avatar af­ter three decades, the brief was to cre­ate an ul­tra­mod­ern three-storey space for mo­biles, smart phones, tablets, hand held smart de­vices, PCs & lap­tops and ac­ces­sories.

The stair­case area has been high­lighted in a dif­fer­ent way with a com­plete twist to the vis­ual lan­guage used. Ac­cord­ing to the de­sign team, this brings in a non-mo­not­o­nous quo­tient and trig­gers in­ter­est
