BUILT BY EVENTSCAPE, JULY 2005
Chrome columns, one-piece framed fabric ceiling, and a double curved, digitally printed, framed fabric wall—are all Eventscape features in this flagship store. The 15 foot elliptical jewel-like chrome columns are constructed of layered bands that expand and visually connect with the ceiling. The bands are hand-bent and welded every 12 inches with over 3,000 welds on each. The one-piece framed fabric ceiling represents running paths winding through the store. Winner of 2006 NASFM Store of the Year, Grand Prize, Full Fixture Grouping Award, and Winner of the 2005 ISP/VM&SD 1st Place Specialty Store and featured in over a dozen magazines.
