Assembling and leading a team of designers and engineers, we took insights from spaces across the world (physical and virtual) to inform this innovative retail design. From an immersive product exploration the moment you enter the space, to a reliable sizing experience using North proprietary technology, this showroom structure was created to be a modular “kit of parts,” replicable across any footprint. These permanent store locations in Brooklyn and Toronto were developed in close collaboration with Berkeley, CA architectural and design firm envelopeA+D and Ontario based North internal engineers.

This was achieved through simple and effective shroud design and proprietary technology in close collaboration with North engineers and envelopeA+D designers.
