Hospitality and retail are back, baby!

They’re authentic, they’re activated, they’re experiential: this issue we put the spotlight on design’s top retail and hospitality destinations. Indesign #85 foregrounds the products, design brands, thought-leaders and projects taking hospitality and retail design beyond 2021.

We celebrate the spaces  – indeed, destinations – we’ve missed the most during a year of scaled-back socialising and distanced interactions. We speak with the designers who are upping the ante and bringing fresh perspective to hospitality and retail environments in 2021. 

“Hospitality and retail are among those industries which have really felt the brunt of prolonged lockdowns and social restrictions. But we don’t want to dwell on the hardships,” writes Indesign Magazine editor Alice Blackwood. Rather, this edition seeks out the revelations: lessons, insights and accomplishments – new design strategies to guide us forward.

In Indesign #85, we hear from Koichi Takada on plant based architecture and design. We host a round-table discussion with DesignOffice, Richards Stanisich, Worksmith and Right Angle Studio to put forward a pre-design services proposition. And Emily Wombwell of SJB shows us how retail is rewriting its future through sensitively designed mixed-use precincts.

This edition we’ve also got a new section (hint: once you get a copy, flip to page 174) which is all about process, rather than the finished product. We explore new best practice approaches to cross-cultural consultation with Australia’s First Nations People.
