Today, people have higher expectation than ever on in-store experience, For businesses,there's more focus than ever on going beyond the expected product or service to deliver a customer experience that truly differentiates. It is viral for retail store design to identify a way by which the brands can establish a strong connection with consumers, deliver brand value, and build sticky customer relationships.
Considering thesurrounding area, BEIJINGFUN, a historic and vibrant place, SODA imagines the VIVINEVO's first store with the perspective of art gallery, integrates brand experience into retail space, and develops an innovative solution to meet and exceed customers’expectations. The VIVINEVO Fragrance Art Gallery designed by SODA is becoming a popular destination in BEIJINGFUN.
SODA希望能通过馆外的花墙吸引过往行人的注意，用洋溢的花香邀请行人走进犹如一瓶香水般的入口，逐步接近一滴涌动的香水，浸入一滴香水，并在最后带走一瓶属于自己的定制香水。SODA designs a flower façade to attract people from a distance, and invites them walk into the gallery through a perfume-bottle-shape entrance where customers are immersed in floral fragrance. A surging surface of a drop of perfume is enlarged and showed up following by. Customers are soaked in perfume and leave the gallery with a custormized one for their own.Media space and experiential scene
香水是变化的，液态的；香味是无形的，气态的，是随时间而变化的。设计师希望艺术馆的空间也能是一个动态的，多层次的，可以随时间变化的香的容器。香水在容器里的状态便成为内部空间的设计来源。Perfume is liquid, intangible, and gaseous. It is always in changing along the atmosphere though the time. The space as imagined container for perfume came into being. The dynamic and multi-level feature of fragrance was interpreted and became tangible in the interior design.
SODA将“媒体空间“的设计理念和在此领域的研究成果应用在这个项目中，来实践对“气味”的表达，创造将虚拟内容与实体环境融合的多维体验环境。SODA applied the“media space”research and practical experience in the tangible design of smell, and integrated the virtual content with the physical space.
此次设计打破了传统的商业空间设计思路，通常空间设计要是以视觉呈现为主体，而香氛艺术馆要展现的主体是嗅觉，这让设计师在研究用户体验时更关注：This project made a break through in the design of tangible smell experience. Unlike the traditional commercial spaces, whose primacy were visual experience at scale, VIVINEVO fragrance art gallery focus on the customers' smell experience, which brought up the following questions:How to provide an olfactory experience?How to combine smelland vision?How to provide sensory experiences other than smell and vision?
为解决以上问题，设计师用大量的多媒体结合空间造型，设计了两个大型的动态展示区：In order to answerthe questions above, designer planed two dynamic digital combined exhibit modules.

入口：是代表SODA设计语言的“实体像素”装置，设计师用将近5000个香水瓶组成了华丽的入口，不仅能更好的展示品牌，同时能有效的吸引过往的行人。The entrance: SODA language—physical pixel installation. The designer collected5000 perfume bottles and made a media structure out of them. The entrance is turned out into a colors-changing media that keeps rendering the atmosphere day and night.
reception at the entrance
the main hall
主展厅：是一面20米长，水珠形态的“动态历史墙“。变幻的色彩在曲面墙上流动，营造出香水的主题氛围，同时展示香水的历史，材料等与展品相关的信息说明。The main hall: a 20m length irregular curved surface with digital projection. The projected changing perfume texture renders the atmosphere of the space. The projected information adds another layer onthe texture and the exhibition, delivering the related knowledge of perfume to the customers, such as history and raw materials.
另一方面，为增强体验的生动性，SODA将交互设计的理念贯穿到整个空间设计中。SODA applied interactive space design method in this project to strengthen the participation in creating memorable experience.
Synesthesia interactive area
Synesthesia interaction: a moving image, odor, sound combined multi-sensory space. By picking up the receiver, the customers will trigger the change of background sound and the video, immerse themselves in the situation of a specific perfume while squeeze and release the odor. The synesthesia experience connects with memory and impressive thecustomers.
Content interactive area
内容交互体验区：注重探索式的体验，由一个交互动画，让参观者通过触碰的交互方式了解香水的制作过程。Content interaction: an interactive process that makes people have a strong desire to explore. Customers touch the digital content and get immediate response while being amused by the interaction.
空间的流线也带有趣味性，顾客可选择不同的参观方式，获得不一样的记忆和交互体验，最后的收获也有所不同。The circulation route is flexible and free to explore. Customers will be entertained while they visit the gallery following their own paths.
在经历了“路过-吸引进入-视觉嗅觉体验-交互式体验”之后，最终到达参与式调香体验及消费区。调香区提供了丰富的香气原料，参观者可以根据个人的喜好，调制出属于自己的独特的香水，完成一次寻香的旅程。After Passing by, being attracted, experiencing a visual and olfactory feast, and playing with enjoyable interactions, customers finally arrive at the participatory perfume modulation and consumption area, where they are provided with rich fragrances to make their own unique perfumes according to personal preferences. An end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matter.
