POWER PLANT

GENETO

FEB 14, 2009 – AUG 2, 2009

CONCEPT

DIESEL DENIM GALLERY is the place to suggest new kinds of lifestyles. It is the base from which culture and art are dispatched. It is like a power plant where the mainspring to make the world go around arises.

As a metaphor for such a place, the interior is filled with energetic elements like electricity and electric waves. Diesel's identity is transmitted throughout the world by waves of electricity.
The lightning-shaped frames accent the space while maintaining the simplicity and openness of this store. The frame also attracts people by bringing complexity of visual wonder to the space. People will encounter different scenes as they walk throughout the space.
