Forty Five Ten, New York City 5G Studio Collaborative
Forty Five Ten’s new New York City boutique brings together fashion, art, and emerging design talent in menswear, womenswear, and beauty in a modern setting strategically positioned to make a major innovative advancement for the industry.
This project received an INNOVATION Award for FIXTURING and INNOVATION Award for ARTISTIC EXPRESSION.
The 16,000-sq.-ft. store is curated into a series of art installations and architectural moments that encourage exploration, provoke thought and curiosity, and ultimately become tactile experiences for guests. Product and merchandise are incorporated directly into installations, allowing shoppers to feel like they are in a participatory, interactive art gallery that is simultaneously disjunctive and cohesive.
Located in the Shops at Hudson Yards, the new store consists of four separate boutiques facing each other across the mall concourse, creating a corner of the retail development that is almost entirely defined by Forty Five Ten's distinctive blend of fashion and art. The individual storefronts are materialized using the same façade design language, creating cohesion between the different departments.
