Retail has had three phases, according to Katelijn Quartier, who heads the Retail Design Laboratory at Hasselt University in Belgium. ‘In Retail 1.0, the manufacturer was in charge and no designer was needed. Retail 2.0 was a phase where the retailer was in charge but hired an architect or interior architect to design the store following the brand’s or retailer’s ideas,’ she wrote in Retail Design, Theoretical Perspectives (Routledge). We have entered ‘Retail 3.0, a time when the customer is more and more in charge… This asks for much more from a designer than to translate a retailer’s identity into a store design and goes beyond mere functionality and efficiency – even more so now that a commodification of products, brands and retail is occurring’.

“In the packaging industry, there is no way around active and intelligent packaging anymore; in the past six years, it has become a real industry.” That was how Eef de Ferrante, Managing Director for the Active & Intelligent Packaging Industry Association opened the 2017 Active & Intelligent Packaging World Congress and Hackathon in Amsterdam. Six years ago, de Ferrante recalled, he visited a supplier showroom with an industry colleague where intelligent packaging technology was being demonstrated. While de Ferrante was excited about the development, his colleague was not impressed. “This is nonsense,” the colleague said. “Nobody is using it now, and nobody will.”

Have you ever gone food shopping on a lovely hot day only to be turned into an icicle walking past the supermarket’s open chiller cabinets?

Suddenly that shorts and T-shirt combo doesn’t seem like such a smart idea as you dive in to grab your organic yoghurts.

The device is basically a thin strip of aluminium and plastic shaped like a wing that is attached to the front of the cabinet shelves.
