in shenzhen, china, ‘conemoting market’ invites shoppers into a futuristic interior that combines a retail space with a bar and café. surrounded by residential buildings from the 1990s, the project by yebin design involved the renovation of an existing building to create not only a shop, but also a social place for the new online generation to enjoy.

after the renovation by yebin design, the five-meter high basement now serves as a retail space displaying self-owned brand clothes and other selected products. the ground floor functions as café in the daytime and a bar in the evening. the transparent orange and red acrylic plates divide the dining area, building a psychedelic visual effect. the warm colors are highlighted by the contrast with the cold silver façade, making it stand out in the community.

a tall giraffe installation stands through both the floors. its cute face can be seen in the café and its feet are present in the basement floor. the entire retail space is wrapped by metallic silver, creating an upscale industrial art atmosphere. all the finishes and products, such as pipes and the huge hand-like chairs, are custom made.

as most of the post-90s generation in china are spending more time on the internet, stores have evolved from a simple sales space into a lifestyle carrier and social place. nowadays, stores are no longer just displaying and selling goods, they are ‘online physical space’. in conemoting market, display and counter sales can already be handled as a supplementary function of the online stores. in essence, it is a physical space that caters for the younger online generation, all the while reflecting the rapid progression of cities in china.
