AND.G Concept Store by DAS Lab presents homogeneity in diversity & emotional symbiosis

Shanghai-based design studio DAS Lab completed the interiors of a store in the Mixc, Shijiazhuang, China

Named AND.G Concept store, the interiors of the store present a metallic atmosphere that takes visitors from one sphere to another.

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main," — John Donne. 

Substances are "symbolized," interpreted, and screened by individuals, that reflects their feedback on practices in the world. Everyone is a part of the collective society and connects with the world, holding on his or her views.

Conscious behaviors bring about the states of paralleling, opposition, merging and detachment, and immerse individuals into their internalized trajectories of movement.

The whole space is regarded as a medium for brands to gather, we analyzed its essence —inclusiveness, trying to find out commonalities among contradictions.

The cluster effect of individuals is realized in a linear manner to form an abstract and flat grid system. Through such a system, AND.G hopes to encourage distinctive individuals and independent brands to connect with their self-identity.

As conceiving the ideology of AND.G, "decentralization" is the presence of the concept yet a practical necessity. Brands are encouraged to radiate themselves while intersecting and penetrating each other, to create vague ‘boundaries’ of non-confusion. 

As opposed to adopting fixed circulation, AND.G links up the ‘points’ to form a ‘plane’ to inspire the customers to have an in-depth dialogue with brands out of intuition.

The purpose of re-examining the effects of contrast, integration, vagueness, and concentration that materials generated in the space, is not merely to pursue visual performance, but more importantly, to further bridge brands with art through creating a diverse yet homogeneous emotional context to convey brand declaration to the public.
