JOY of PUMA:
A fixturization kit of interchangeable stock parts enables this entire
environment to be reconfigured without use of material handling
equipment. While providing extreme flexibility for seasonal and
inventory needs, this also enables the entire store to be packed up
quickly and relocated to another site with little deconstruction and
waste. With joinery comprising screws sans glue, fixtures can be
taken apart without destroying the components. Combined with
the use of 100 percent recyclable materials, this engineering strategy
enables the store elements to be reused and/or recycled, revolutionizing not only Puma’s factory, but the very concept of retail design.
