A retail space that has the point of view of a magazine
Collaboration: Alifiyah Vali, Yoojeong Sally Oh, Ariel Lumry
In this project we are designing a pushcart for Story, a retail space in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York. The pushcart will be placed in various venues, for example hotel lobbies and collaborative work spaces throughout the city. When closed the cart will be approximately 6’ x 4’ to allow it to fit though most doorways and openings.
The pushcart will have movable modular components that will serve as a blank canvas that can be modified for every new story. The Story Wall and Letter to the Editor are constant elements in each story; the cart will have a permanent display for these elements as well as a hanging display, shelving and a lockable showcase.
This pushcart will serve as a retail “space” as well as provide opportunities for various community events to be featured in and around the cart. It will have a maximum storage component and be versatile in such that the modular components can be reconfigured to meet the theme and the needs of the current story.Once closed, the pushcart will be lockable.
Story, located in the industrial neighborhood of Chelsea with a heavy concentration of art galleries in which the interiors of the spaces are always on display. The design and concept of the cart will draw inspiration from the design of the store and its surrounding neighborhood.
