OPAQUE

 

A live catalogue space within the department store where the public can focus on the heritage, materiality, and quality of objects.

Products from different departments within the store are periodically selected by theme, season, material, etc and exhibited in isolation on the PLATFORM shelving system. Inter-store menus and a discrete numbering system are used to provide alternative background information such as production methods, craftsmenship, materiality, as well as in-store locations.
