• Austrian fashion store Kastner & Öhler has opened five locations, including this one located in Leoben, Austria. It was designed by Stuttgart, Germany-based blocher partners, with shopfittings by Amstetten, Austria-based Umdasch Shopfitting Group GmbH. The red entrance way makes an eye-catching branding statement. In the shop windows an asymmetrical, free-standing portal in the red of the department store’s corporate design attracts the attention of the passers-by.

  • The Young Fashion, Women’s and Men’s fashions are set apart from each other in a harmonious way through the different color schemes, including copper and anthracite, in the surface finish of the shelving.

  • The Young Fashion Department is decorated in shades of grey, from greyish-white speckled tiles on the floor to furniture elements of oak with surface finishing in matte anthracite. Above the whole is a medium grey high, open ceiling with a rail pattern, the so-called grid, providing flexible presentation possibilities. In front are suspended frames and special frames with flattened corners which emphasize the height of the room.

  • Warm furnishings in light oak wood form a constant feature is which is repeated in the presentation of the products and even in the checkout area, designed by Umdasch.

  • The Kids’ World is multi-faceted. It is separated from the other departments and the area is defined as a house-within-a-house construction. A step-like platform of light-colored wood for the presentation of jeans and pullovers symbolizes the entrance. A square ceiling construction in the same material announces the Kids’ World from afar.

  • The display unit for sunglasses by Umdasch is also new. With its different levels and LED lighting the shelf forms the perfect setting for the models by famous designers.

  • The arrangement of high-end bags is particularly eye-catching. They are presented on round shelves suspended from the ceiling. They correspond with a display on the adjoining wall where a mosaic-like world map has been produced with 3-D printing.

  • Throughout the store, special furnishings ensure a stylistic variety–in different colors, materials, heights and forms; sometimes with feet at a skewed angle or concave-shaped edges, sometimes worked in wood or upholstered and complemented by curated theme islands with highlight furnishings, carpets, special lighting and seating areas.

  • The Modern Classic departments contrast with the Young Fashion section and extend in an L-shape from the entrance to the back area of the store, accompanied by a wood-look floor covering.
