beginning with a simple interaction on instagram, the LA sneaker boutique of authentix hired UP studio to design a space from their brooklyn studio. after developing the concept, and presenting via skype, the millwork was digitally engineered by a fabricator in lexington, kentucky. the team was then able to have the pieces cut and assembled to the necessary specifications in an local shop and installed on-time and on-budget.

the display of the product is centralized and divided into five 8-by-8 ft units. each module is capable of rotating 360 degrees, allowing the interior to be easily customized in relation to the season or special occasions. this functionality is increased with a skin system based on the golden section that allows portions of the constructs to alternatively operate as storage compartments. as a result, the contemporary cabinets are juxtaposed against the raw, historic perimeter walls that are free for local artists to showcase their work.
