Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
From gallery-like fashion boutiques to community driven bookstores, 100 projects by a panoply of international designers offer a global overview of the current retail design scene. Projects were selected based on their original concept, creativity and innovative solutions.
From pop-ups and luxury boutiques, to food markets and gourmet shops
The book is divided into four chapters illustrating different approaches to the discipline. Interviews with designers Alberto Caiola, Alex Mok and Briar Hickling, and Johannes Torpe introduce the themes of each chapter. All in all, Powershop 6 offers insight into the importance of retail space in the age of e-commerce and the need for brands to value authenticity over tendencies.
