Zurich, Switzerland, 2000The Skim.com shop is more than a shop; it is a lively and stimulating environment in which users encounter a variety of cultural expressions compatible with their lifestyle, such as fashion, music, art and entertainment. The Skim.com shop is also a gallery; it offers free internet access, at night turns into a lounge, and hosts facilities for toasting music. The shop of the future articulates a more hybrid approach than ever before and, very importantly, both through its concept and design, signals its integrity to an increasingly sophisticated audience.
