Artifacts Nanshi

Shoppers enter the space through nine rotating glass doors.

Take a look at the second Artifacts retail shop by Taiwanese interior designers Michelle Wei and Cheng Chia Hao. Earlier we showed you their design of the Dunhua location; the second Nanshi shop employs a stronger use of graphics.

Striving to create a futuristic shopping gallery in an achromatic space, Wei and Chia created nine rotating glass doors at the entranceway. Each door is topped with a letter, spelling out ‘Artifacts.’ The doors can turn 360-degrees, inviting customers to transfer into the shop via a unique route.

Inside, walls are covered repeatedly with clothing displays that create a geometric pattern.

‘As the philosophy of Artifacts, the design elements convey the idea of being rational, technological and geometrical, giving the customers a surreal shopping experience,’ Hao says. ‘We wanted to show order, logic and precision through cold colors, materials and geometric shapes at the same time.’
