Context / environment
Our shops is located in Louisville in Kentucky inside the Mall St Matthews.
This shop decided to have I Series P5.2 Interactive LED Floor.
They contacted Street Co’ to help design the LED floor screen display that would fit right inside of the new concept store of Zappos. However, this project is a year behind schedule because of COVID-19.
The client has shared CAD drawings of the floor plan and the main objective was to use LED displays to embellish and present the product while creating a ‘Digital 4.0 experience’’ type of atmosphere by displaying content that would fit perfectly the rest of the shop design.
The client would advertise products and news about the brand in a very soft and non-aggressive style.
The brief was simple and straightforward:
‘What is the best product to create a wahou effect and encourages customers to stay longer in their store.
They also wanted to set themselves apart from all the ‘Deja vu’ luxury concept store.
