Shop with your senses
Timmermans is a Belgian family-owned footwear store. After 145 years in the footwear and leather business, they found themselves at a crossroads: the next generation was about to take over. Timmermans decided to mark this occasion by opening a new 400 mᒾ venue.
Aware of the ascent of online retail, Timmermans wanted to play to their strengths by offering customers a tailored shopping experience that stimulated the senses. You can feel the shoes and clothes. You can touch them. Slip them on. Even smell them. That’s where a physical store trumps its digital equivalent.
We translated this sensorial advantage into an innovative store layout based on the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. And worked closely with Timmermans to establish this vision across the interior.
