Window Design : The MIX-PLACE (NOV. 2015 - NOV. 2016)

The MIX-PLACE
Contemporary Mixed Experimental Lifestyle Space in China

Located on Hengshan road, formerly known as Avenue Petain, a street in the former French Concession area of Shanghai, China. Hengshan road is famous for European style architecture and the city’s oldest bar street. In such an area full of cultural and historic footage, The Mix Place converted four old mansions from the 30s into experimental spaces, showcasing China contemporary lifestyle.

As the pioneer of mixed experimental space, The Mix Place is a brand new form of lifestyle themes bookstore, a contemporary gentlemen store, a fashion-forward boutique buyer store, and a premier couture store.

The Mix Place is about the metropolis city, the lifestyle, and its people that resident in. It converges reading, fashion, writing, music, film, and art, providing its unique customers a unique experiences as well as creative inspirations.

words from Creative Director - Rocky Liang

Window Design ( NOV. 2015 - NOV. 2016)

I designed 6 projects and other 5 projects were designed by other brands or exhibitions' teams, such as HAY (Denmark), ARTLAVIE (China) , FCJZ (Yong Ho Chang's studio), LOUIS VUITTON (France) and Daily Project (Beijing).

The Photographic Exhibition of Wang Yin (NOV. 2016)

Wang Yin: a poet, writer, photographer and journalist in China.
A exhibition of Wang Yin was held at The Mix-Place, having a name that matches the season, “One Percent of the Autumn”.
This window was designed for this exhibition especially, therefore I used many picked up leaves of platanus near our store and yellowing old book pages to cover the window ground. In addition, Wang Yin’s poems and some books that used his photography as the cover were hanged in the middle of window.
The poster on the wall of this window was designed by Lu XIAO (The MIX-PLACE / Business of Culture).


王寅摄影展(2016年11月)

王寅: 诗人、作家、摄影师、记者。
王寅该展览有一个非常契合当下季节的名字,叫“百分之一的秋天”。于是,在这个配合他摄影展而设计的橱窗中,我使用了许多从书店旁捡来的法国梧桐叶以及一些泛黄的旧书页铺满在地上。此外,橱窗中间悬挂着他的诗集和几本封面是他摄影作品的书籍。
橱窗里墙上的海报由肖璐设计(衡山和集文化力团队)。

Mix+1 (NOV. 2016)

The first-year anniversary window of The Mix-Place embraced the traditional Chinese landscape painting style.
There were three “mountain bodies” made by lamp tubes of varied sizes, and the “flowing clouds” around the “mountain bodies” are made from organza. Books were stacked up from the ground, resembling three hills.
The logo of “MIX+1” design on MIX-PAPER implis the first anniversary of The MIX-PLACE.
