Compactness is always an essential and fundamental design concept when one is creating a space, even if that concept is not immediately noticeable. Being compact does not relate to function. Function implies conservativeness, but being compact implies innovation. When a space is compact, it is essentially a small, pleasant space, in which one can enjoy a meaningful experience. There are two kinds of compact spaces: spaces designed to fit a small site, and spaces designed with compact details. As the various products displayed in commercial sites have become more compact, so has shop furniture and branding images, creating a new concept of contemporary commercial space: the compact shop. Designers Compact Shops offers 100 innovative shops and small space solutions to anyone interested in interior and retail design in the 21st century.
