Snarkitecture's design for Kith’s 3,000-square-foot Brooklyn flagship invites visitors through a series of experiences, beginning with the storefront window display that is home to Kith Treats, a cereal and ice cream bar.
Past Kith Treats visitors enter the Archive, a tile-clad pavilion, which demarcates the entrance to the Kith store. The inner chamber of the Archive is a reliquary for displaying selections from owner, Ronnie Fieg’s personal sneaker collection. The Archive is designed as a flexible exhibition space, allowing visiting brands to takeover the space and showcase products in the glass and stainless steel niches.
The visitor experience culminates in the central sales area, where an extended corridor is created using floor-to-ceiling, stainless steel and glass shoe displays. Visitors can move through the shoe displays and view the products arranged on the shelving along the perimeter walls.
Overhead is the main focal point of the store--a custom installation of 650 all white, cast replica Jordan II sneakers.The arrangement of the shoes creates a forced-perspective when one stands at either end of the store.
