Vanity Height: How Much of a Skyscraper is Usable Space?

Comprised of simple cardboard tubes suspended in clear Perspex sheets, the modular panel design creates a flexible and enclosed environment of varying transparency. This flexibility allows for various configurations to be explored in different locations around the UK. A solution is formed with three easily fabricated panel types resulting in an events space which both draws the public in and screens off its surrounding environment, offering a degree of privacy.

The Pavilion went through various incarnations and took the Grimshaw and John Lewis instore design team several months to perfect. The launch of the Pavilion is planned to coincide with New West End Companys High Street Fashion Week and will be in situ in Oxford Street over London Fashion Week and Vogue Shopping Night Out on 8th September. Susanne Given, Buying Director of Fashion and Beauty, comments, Fashion is increasingly about the retail experience so we really wanted to add a new, exciting dimension to John Lewis fashion floors, something that would mark us out as a retail innovator.

This unique pop-up installation called for an innovative proposal which fused exhibition design and architecture, whilst enabling John
