Bringing the alchemy of Crystal to Waterford’s NYC pop-up
A contemporary Crystal retail pop-up design
For centuries, Waterford has been the synonymous name in Crystal. Keen to evolve its 200-year legacy in a new age of artistry — we brought to life their new brand direction & positioning with a retail concept design rich in immersive brand storytelling.
Inspired by the almost magical, alchemical transformation of Crystal - we reimagined their retail identity with a new, evocative interior design concept. One rich with visual metaphors, harking back to the brand's Irish origins and the moulding rooms of their Mastercraftsmen in the House of Waterford. Imbuing their brand space with an authentic and ownable brand experience that takes consumers on a story of transformation, creation and combination of matter that results in the world's best-selling Crystal.
The inception of Waterford's new retail identity design, manifested in the brand's first standalone pop-up store in the U.S. – right in the heart of SoHo, home to New York's high-end art and hospitality culture. The new brand direction launch campaign took New York by storm, with people flocking to the pop-up store to marvel at the store-exclusive Crystal designs and the immersive installation that transports people to Ireland in an unforgettable brand experience. This is Crystal, as it should be sold - creating desirability and relevance with a new generation whilst re-affirming Waterford’s luxury brand status.
