Minneapolis-based Stylmark, a designer and manufacturer of a variety of furnishings such as aluminum and steel products, shelving, kiosks, LED lighting fixtures, architectural moldings and more, lended its support to University of Minnesota students who were competing in the U.S. version of the PAVE Student Design Competition.
College-level students from all over the country who want to pursue careers in retail design compete. The U. of M. students worked with Nordstrom to create a mobile, high tech, smart fitting room that they said makes trying on clothing easy, fun and convenient.
The innovative design, with help from Stylmark appointments, personalizes the shopping experience by providing interactive and customizable elements that put the customer in control.
“With a push of a button, the curtain automatically opens and closes to create privacy. Equally important, the exterior and interior are lined with shelves to maximize the possibilities for display and merchandising. This feature allows the shoppers to discover new offerings and also to have a place to store personal items while discovering new products and services. Another interesting feature is the customizable lighting options that imitate different social events, so the consumer knows exactly how they will look and feel for all occasions.”
On its Facebook page, Stylmark also thanked Bishop Fixtures and Tarkett for their support in this project.
