Internally illuminated display boxes glow with focused energy around the storefront merchandise to create an ethereal shopping experience.  The Luggage Factory’s flagship store design in the new Fashion Outlets of Chicago is an international shopper destination.  Hidden LED strips located with mathematical precision are blurred by glass coated in a special diffusing film to conceal the diodes.  3/8″ thick horizontal shelves supported by 1 1/4″ sq tube and aircraft cable support the showcased merchandise.  Contrasting monolithic frames clad in honed porcelain tile create a strong retail storefront design.
