On the Launch of FixturesCloseUp

“This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.” (Navin R. Johnson aka Steve Martin in the movie “The Jerk“)

On the Goal of FixturesCloseUp Posts

The Devil is in the details.

This blog is a 10,300 post 30,000 image pictorial inventory of unique or otherwise interesting small-scale fixtures seen across the entire range of retailing.  Just as a city-scape is built up of individual bricks, beams and boards, so a store is constructed of many small-scale fixtures that combine to help create the selling-floor environment. Many of these small elements are unsung heroes in creating an effective, functional, appealing merchandising space for goods. Because of the wide-ranging creativity of designers, similar display problems are often solved in unique ways.  This site attempts to document these varying solutions … and provide a source of ideas and inspiration for additional new solutions or new applications of existing fixtures.  FixturesCloseUp targets a “purer” fixture readership than that of old-guard publications like Design:Retail and VMSD, eliminating “waste circulation” to flooring, lighting, HVAC, and other non-fixture sectors.
