We’re excited to give you a glimpse at another project we’re completed for RYU Apparel Inc, the award-winning urban athletic apparel and accessories brand.
Completed in collaboration with architectural company IBI Group , this 2002 square foot retail space boasts the same industrial-modern aesthetic look as the rest of RYU’s stores in the Lower Mainland. The sleek look of this design trend showcases wood and metal surfaces, neutral tones and utilitarian furniture in order to better showcase RYU’s apparel, accessories and extensive assortment of multi-use bags.
The interior design employs the interplay of earthy wood against smooth metal as a way to add interest. Floor lamps and pendants add focused and ambient lighting that enhance the shopping experience. As is the case with most industrial interior design, there are bare beams and visible duct-work that acts as a way to add visual dimension; the ceiling is also painted black in order to add a sense of depth.
RYU utilises their stores to engage consumers and educate them about the brand; we endeavoured to construct a space that did exactly that! This Metrotown store possesses a layout that is ideal for displaying all the products on offer and has the space available for community events, product launches and other social activities. RYU Metrotown even organises art and yoga classes on a regular basis.
This Vancouver-based athletic-wear label is escalating its operations fast, with latest news announcing that it will soon begin a North American expansion into Los Angeles, Newport Beach and New York City. We’re so pleased to have played a part in its success here in BC and look forward to many more new stores in the future!
