Very Small Shops
This book brings together some of the best recent, innovative examples of small store designs from around the world. All the shops measure less than 150 square metres (many much less), and are grouped by size, with explanations and tips from their designers. Types of outlet featured include fashion, accessories, opticians, technology, food and confectionary.
The book is divided into three sections: small shops, smaller shops and tiny shops. Each section begins with an interview with a designer of a small shop, explaining the creative opportunities and difficulties in greater detail. This book will be inspirational for retail designers and small shop owners looking to create their own big statement in a small space.
