AR/BA/SON MARKET | INTERACTION POINTS
THE MARKET STALL
`Creating the Shape
A critical action that is being used throughout the Ar/Ba/Son Market is the encouragement of interaction. I wanted to utilise the overall market concept of exposing these interactions and embodying them into the space itself. The shape the market stall takes on goes against the natural instinct of design surrounding the Covid-19 regulations, instead of creating an inherently exposed stall; the stall rather takes on the form of a person reaching for an embrace. This was done because traditionally market stalls position the display tables to the forefront of the stall. The decision to invert this was to create a sense of traditional retail operation, inviting interaction between consumer and brand. For ease, the artisans have the choice between two sets of shelving units if they so wish to use them. This cuts down on their spending as they won’t be out of pocket for having to fit out the stall. There is also a removable are that can be used to divide the stall up if not a lot of retail space is required by the vendor.
