If my mission is to show fixture alternatives for retail, then this is surely one to stimulate your thinking. You must agree it is like nothing else … though more than vaguely tripodal or to my North American cultural imperatives, Tipi in construction. Tripods, tipi’s and pyramidal shapes are among the most stable structures, so I would expect this structure to be also. Plus it offers overhead display opportunities unrealized in boxier fixture forms. Normally I do not show any item that I do not personally see on the retail floor, but here I violate my own rule. This is the Italian Metalfilo Shanghai system. CLICK the thumbnail for another angle view. As for the name Shanghai, yes it could have a tie to open, airy Bamboo-based construction. Tell us all what uses you could put it to.
