Innovation and inspiration to kick start your week


FANTASY DINING
This new immersive restaurant looks to give diners a unique experience by unleashing a ‘scenic world’ inspired by the beauty of Japan and the dish’s ingredients. When the dishes are served projections seem to ‘grow’ out from the plates, filling the room and even reacting to diners’ behaviour. The restaurant creates an exclusive appeal by only serving only eight guests a day enhancing the feeling of a one-of-a-kind experience.
Household takeout: This multi-sensory experience tells the rich story behind each dish, playing with customer’s imagination and increasing the perceived value by creating an experience that can not be replicated.
 

GET THE BEAUTY BUZZ
Innovation by Space NK is the beauty brand’s latest concept store that acts as a testing bed for new products and ranges. The space showcases new launches with unique VM displays and a specially curated ‘The Edit’ area, inspired by the latest social media beauty trends and buzz words. The space caters to customers who want to be the first to not just buy, but to try the latest products with in-store treatments available.
Household takeout: Inspiring displays encourage customers to ‘get-the-look’ and test out new combinations led by trend-focused recommendations. Hero-ing your latest releases makes in-store the place to be for brand-fanatics.
